Flexible plastic sheets to go into commercial production next year.

Yi Chen


Researchers from the University of Cambridge have created a super thin ‘e-paper’ using a plastic material that’s printed with half-a-million transistors. These electronic sheets are very lightweight, flexible, energy-efficient, and use e-ink to display words, images, and videos in color.

The e-paper is designed to receive content over a wireless network, and has a simple touch command that allows users to ‘flick’ through the pages on screen. The technology is currently being produced by Plastic Logic, and will be going into commercial production next year.

To see how the e-paper is produced and for a demonstration of it, watch the BBC interview below.
