|The sony ebook reader. I can see most of you will scoff at the idea of a ebook reader better than normal books, but just check out the features:
1. In this ebook reader the screen won't be LCD nor plasma,
2. refresh rate: 0 , meaning 0.0 flicker, hence no strain on eyes.
3. No backlight- lke traditional modile LCD, laptop or crt screens
3. It would require external soure of light- sun tubelight jsut like paper
4. On a single recharge 7500 page turns are possible
Not impressed? Read on..
the most AMAZING thing is that to display text(or images) it wouldn't require ELECTRICITY. No electricity!! So just like paper it would just stay!!
This epaper is also bendable and can display colour.
Imagine what would happen if every rural household in India gets this. That would be the information age for India.
I read about this a few weeks back but saw it today on 'click' on BBC Timings:
