Scottish group develops e-paper prototype


Here's yet another group working on e-paper, for those of you keeping score at home: a team at Scotland's Paisley University Thin Film Centre has produced a working prototype of what they say is a working e-paper prototype, which can download info into a lightweight, high-contrast device that the developers refer to as "cheap and flexible." The research is being funded by DuPoint-Teijin Films and plastic electronics developer Plastic Logic. As with other similar projects, we assume this one is a long way from developing anything that can be commercialized. For the record, though, it's worth noting that the local paper, The Scotsman, has breathlessly declared this to be a "potentially life-changing creation."
