Sony Demonstrates Extra Thin E-Paper

The prototype is powered by organic TFTs (thin film transistors) and can be folded around a radius of 5mm.

Sony unveiled a new product at the 49th SID International Symposium, Seminar & Exhibition (SID 2011), a conference on display technologies, which ran from May 15th-20th in Los Angeles. This flexible electronic paper (e-paper) can be bent to a 5mm curvature radius. Each 13.3-inch sheet has a 150 ppi resolution and is powered by organic TFTs (thin film transistors). The prototype black and white e-paper uses Sony’s electrophoretic front plane laminate. The Japanese company’s flexible paper is yet to be named and there was no announcement about when it would be available to buy.
