This is the future. Two years ago, when I first started in Graphic Communication at Cal Poly, Dr. Levenson, the head of my department, used the promise of this technology as a “wow-er” for all the new GrC students.
The concept is quite simple: E-Ink is a new way to read books, using a digital display to shift pixels along and flip pages in the book. One AAA battery holds enough juice for 10,000 page flips. Insanity.
Anyhow, read up on it. You won’t be sorry.
