Bridgestone Corp’s new e-paper refreshes in just 0.8 seconds, has pen input!
If you have been wasting those precious moments in your working schedule just waiting to refresh your e-paper then here’s some relief. Bridgestone Corp’s new e-paper saves a lot of time that was earlier used up in just refreshing the page (over 10 seconds!). Now that the refresh time has been reduced, Bridgestone have been able to introduced pen input. It uses the proprietary electronic powder and granular material along with a color filter and an electromagnetic induction type pen input tabled from Wacom Co Ltd.
Bridgestone Corp hasn’t revealed a lot of details about this product as yet. The device features a passive matrix panel. This one was displayed at a trade show in Tokyo.
