LG Producing Color and Flexible e-Paper Displays
LG Display has submitted a filing to the US Securities and Exchange Commission indicating they’re going to start producing a 9.7 color e-paper display and a 19 inch flexible e-paper display.
Companies tend to pump out neat prototypes that get shown off at events like the Consumer Electronics Show, but this is one of the first times in recent memory that “futuristic” technology familiar from film, such as the newspaper in Minority Report, will actually be put into production (and by the end of the year!).
If the picture is any indication, the flexible display probably won’t have any kind of touchscreen capabilities (considering there aren’t currently any filings to produce a flexible touchscreen) and will require some other kind of input, such as gesture control. With the existence of technology inspired by film on the rise, it begs the question, will precrime follow?
