Back in July, PSFK reported on Fujitsu’s development of ePaper. Today, the UK Times runs an article about the Japanese company’s plans to use ePaper in eveything:

If Fujitsu is right, and the world pulps the flat, white stuff and switches to its patented “e-paper”, a wafer-thin film of plastic that can slip easily into a handbag or briefcase will “turn” each new page at the push of a button.

In the brave new world envisaged by Fujitsu, flexible e-paper will appear everywhere from advertising hoardings to price tags in supermarkets. E-paper scrolls will unfurl from the backs of mobile phones to form large screens for viewing websites and reading maps. Fridge doors coated in e-paper could deliver downloads of recipes or traffic updates. Almost any level surface, in fact, could become an e-paper billboard.
