The E Ink Corporation is developing a revolutionary new way of media distribution, epaper. This technology has been around for several years, however, it’s now evolving at an incredible pace. There were even recent unfounded rumors that the Seattle Post Intelligencer was about to release an epaper edition. The widespread introduction of this medium, will undoubtedly have a profound impact on how we interact with both the printed word and still images.
The idea is that new data is transmitted to the epaper whenever it needs updating via radio signal… You buy the epaper once; it’s hardware, thereafter, the content is distributed via subscription. It has all kinds of applications, even as a substitute for, say, grocery store white boards. When they need updating you simply hit send… And hey, if the RadioPaper prototype doesn’t meet your expectations as a media delivery device, it looks like it might make a great dildo. It’s a win-win!
