E-Ink is attending the Architecture Biennale conference in Italy and is showing off a house, novelty furniture and a pillar made of in-house-developed color-variable e-paper called Prism.
There are some very interesting things being done with E-Ink tech, that goes beyond e-Readers. We could see walls of a house made of 32 tiles of 32 inch E Ink Prism e-paper, able to light dynamically and display information and images. They could also be used as static displays, by reflecting light without consuming power. There was also a tablet with 4 legs wrapped with flexible e-paper, looking like it was floating in air when the e-paper got dark.
