25 Astonishing E-Ink Products

From Dual Screen Phones to Debt-Saving Plastics

— February 1, 2013 — Eco
These astonishing e-ink products point to the way in which tech companies have wholeheartedly embraced the quick shifting of characters. The consistently refreshed display of sentences and images has been essential to the rise of Kindles and related tools, preferred for their interactive qualities and ability to run on minimal amounts of power.

Dual screen phones and debt-saving plastics have gone hand in hand with the rise of these e-ink products. While e-ink was initially applied to the virtual handheld books, it has since spread to the likes of alarm clocks, posters, phones, watches and even jewelry pieces. This follows up on the practicality of the design as it can flip quickly back and forth between various sets of information.
