The Displio is an Internet-connected device featuring an e-ink display on a screen measuring just 2.7-inches.

Powered by range of widgets developed by the Draugiem Group, the Displio is able to display Internet information such as e-mails, social media notifications and weather updates to the user. Because of its considerably smaller size, the Displio is able to operate for an entire month on a single charge.

The Displio also comes equipped with its own API and widget creator, allowing the user the freedom to program their own widgets. The designers immediately saw the potential for the device, saying, "With almost every Internet service and product offering APIs, there are so many different widgets we or anyone else could make."
