First A4 colour e-paper unfurled

a4 display

Philips presented an A4-sized colour electronic paper. A paper-thin and bendable viewing panel. "This represents the next generation in display technology," Chung In-Jae, chief technology officer and executive vice-president, said in the statement.

So, does this mean the paperless society is further away then ever or right around the corner? It is kinda corny they made it A4 size (to make it fit in your printer?). One great thing about this 'electronic paper' is that it only consumes power when the image changes on the display. I also like the fact that it -as it seems- is a passive display, meaning that it is reflecting instead of emitting light (It shoudn't give you the feeling you're looking into a lightbulb, like reguar displays and will automatically adjust to the environmental lighting conditions). I believe that once affordable it could lead to many interesting 'information decoration' type of products.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
