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.
One of the key characteristics of Plastic Logic's electronic paper technology is that it's flexible. This machine is used to stress test the material and measure the impact that bending and manipulation has on the displays. The picture shows about the maximum that one of the company's standard e-reader displays can bend. However, thinner versions currently in development will be able to fold almost in half.
