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.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
