As a scifi fan as well as tech enthusiast I am always excited to see marketable technology become reality. Was anyone else a little amazed when you saw the epaper in the movie "Minority Report"? I for one really like this.

Could you guys dig up a little more about the 11.5" Skiff reader, please? Battery life seems like a really interesting topic since the reader is so thin, yet relatively packed. Also weight! :)

[citation][nom]zak_mckraken[/nom]The fact that it's slim, thus light, is very nice. But why does it have to be flexible?"Hey guys, look! I can bend my new *CRACK* ... Oh shit..."[/citation]


Lmao. I had the same though. Just like the "unbreakable cell phone".

Using metal foil seems like it would eventually break if you flex it many times. It's durability would thus be quite low I would think.

I, have just been waiting to see it in the news. I have had full faith this would happen. It will most certainly branch out in many other forms. Depending on it's brightness, would be nice to have tiled on your ceiling for limitless lighting. ANYTHING, that is just a corny "idea".
