Plastic Logic showcases e-paper R&D initiatives
Check out the world's first colour flexible plastic display with video rate driven by OTFTs
Plastic Logic opened the doors of it's Cambridge lab on 27 June, to give journalists and analysts an insight into some of its research and development projects. As well as demonstrating the world's first colour flexible plastic display with video rate driven by organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs), the company was also keen to show off some of its other innovations, including, transmissive backplanes, ultra-thin form factors and plastic displays embedded with silicon chips.
Most of Plastic Logic's backplanes are about the thickness of a stiff piece of card. However, the company is developing an ultra thin version of its backplane, using the same technology, which is half the thickness of a piece of paper. This makes the electronic paper even easier to manipulate, opening up new possibilities for wearable devices such as watches and hospital wristbands.
