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.
Robust and flexible
Engineers decided to show how robust Plastic Logic's displays were by shooting a bullet through one of them. Although a portion of the display was damaged, the majority was still visible and also responded when the input changed. The screen can also be cut with scissors and still display the image, as long as the electronics themselves are not damaged.
