LG Display has demonstrated a flexible electronic display about the size of a tabloid newspaper which could be the first step in creating a new generation of e-readers.
LG Display’s flexible electronic display measure 25cm x 40cm which the company claims is the largest electronic paper display ever produced.
LG Display predicts that the flexible electronic paper displays could replace newspapers with the device capable of being updated on the go and displaying video and other multimedia.
The display uses a thin layer of transistors on a metal foil rather than the glass used in most conventional ebook readers. LG Display’s method has already been put to use in Hearst’s Skiff Reader.
While LG Display is showing a working prototype, there’s no indication of when the tabloid sized version of its technology might come to market. The big issues remains the lack of colour.
