epaper

Will our mobile devices look like this in two years time? This is an example-application of the featherweight QVGA (320x240 pixels) active-matrix display: Phillips e-paper. (It doesn't look very next-nature, does it?)

The question is: why are we developping rich information-technology that looks and feels like old media. What's the gain?

In the first place my post was to show the technology only. By saying: "It doesn’t look very next-nature, does it?" I figured that someone would react that the picture of this application is not a very forward-thinking, next-nature concept. In my opinion the technology itself could be exactly that. So if this new medium starts off as an imitation of some older medium, I am very curious if we could predict its future development.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
