A story about eink
- Aug 01, 2018 -
The e-reader is probably the least gadget-y gadget ever created. No one ever exclaims about its remarkable specs. It doesn't need upgrading every two years. You just pick it up, turn it on, and read. It's always felt that way too, even when the Kindle had a keyboard and nineteen buttons and weighed four hundred pounds.
It's the black and white eink display that really sets the tone. It's slow and sort of awkward to tap around on, but it's simple. It doesn't shine brightly the way your phone does, keeping your spouse up at night. Eventually, you stop thinking about the Kindle as a screen altogether. It's just a book.
Electronic paper, as that display tech is known (E Ink is a trademarked term owned by the company named E Ink, the tech's leading purveyor), has always been associated primarily with the Kindle and its ilk. But e-paper is about to be much bigger than e-books. These durable, easy-to-read screens are taking over the world, from billboards to price tags to the walls of your house. We've been imagining this future forever: the all-screen worlds of Total Recall, Minority Report, Blade Runner, and other less-dystopian movies. Researchers have spent decades working out how to turn walls, floors, ceilings, and facades into touchscreens. The only way that works is if those screens are rugged as hell, don't need much power, and can be used and seen in absolutely any conditions. Only one display technology checks all those boxes. Sooner than you think, e-paper is going to be everywhere. You might not even notice it's there, and that's the point.
