A Japanese company has developed a simple black and white e-ink display on items that is typically used for Kindle readers.
This low resolution display has the ability to save battery life but also deliver vibrant colors. This company promises fantastic battery by emulating many of the tricks that e-ink displays employ. The newly-developed scattering layer makes it highly reflective and visible without the need for a backlight that can often consume battery life.
The unique Memory-In-Pixel—or MIP—structure of these new LCDs allow them to display a static image indefinitely without the need for additional power to be generated. This new e-ink display can provide a decent viewing experience but will save your power in the long run after continuous use for most display screen products.
