E Ink has reported earnings of $106 million dollars for the 2nd quarter of 2015 and the company has generated around $200 million for the first half of the year.
According to Digitimes “Amazon remained one of EIH’s main customers throughout the quarter seeking E Ink Carta EPD technology for its New Kindle Paperwhite e-reader. EIH also benefited from new developments with Ueberall, an experiential design firm, in which the two have announced eFLOW, an interactive sculpture consisting of 52 strips of E Ink Prism 16 feet long and formed in the shape of a large band of fibers. The technology uses motion sensing transducers to activate the Prism film, and through external sensory inputs, eFLOW comes alive by detecting and responding to the presence and movement of people in its vicinity.”
It is very likely that e Ink will generate more revenue as the year goes on with new e-readers hitting the the market. The Amazon Kindle Voyage 2, Kobo Touch 2.0 and Barnes and Noble Glowlight 2 are just a few of the new devices that will be available soon.
