E-paper now in color

In 2003, while finalists of the Descartes Prize for European Research Excellence, we (the Agentcities team) lost the competition because the Cambridge University, in association with Phillips and other researchers, developed the first ever rough version of e-paper. We were glad to just be a part of the finalists' list, but it was clear that their inovation was the most futuristic and appealing of all the finalists' work.

Now, this technology has come a long way and Bridgestone is showing a new version of e-paper that is able to display 4,096 colors on an eight-inch display. Also, they're stating that they are already working on a 21-inch display for this technology.

Do you know what this means? Thinner laptops/monitors/portable gaming consoles...or even interactive newspapers... endless possibilities!
