Good video about how e-ink works and a bit of history

This video showed up in my feed, and I wanted to share it.

It shows some of the technology of the actual e-ink screen, for anoyone who doesn't know how it works.

It's probably news to all those people who still think that backlights are used with these screens.

The guy in that video even said they have backlights. Overall I think it was a good video except for that.

That part about how you can get ghosting when the page doesn't paint entirely black first has me wondering. My kindle has a setting where you can make it do the entirely black thing but it's normally off. Is there some reason they provide that setting?
