Citizen's paper-thin digital clock

Citizen Paper Thin Digital Clock

Citizen Watch recently unveiled a digital clock that's as thin as a piece of paper and fully flexible. The clock uses E Ink Imaging Film, which doesn't require a backlight and consumes about 1/100th the power of traditional displays. It also apparently has an inherently stable "memory effect," requiring no power to maintain an image. No word yet on how much it'll cost, but Citizen plans to market the clock in Japan sometime this year, with a possible international release to follow.
