Is that the new Bond movie you’re wearing?

Reminiscent of the newspapers from Minority Report, e-paper is being developed…

“Hot on the heels of the invention of a wafer-thin foldable screen that can display static type and may one day replace newspapers as it can be overwritten each day, scientists at Philips Research in Eindhoven have found a way to display high-definition moving pictures as well.”

A photo of this new display shows its flexibility which brings other ideas…

“Not only does e-paper work on very low voltages, but its light weight and great flexibility give it a multitude of potential applications from computer screens to wearable cinematic suits.

With an e-paper screen sewn into a jacket, wearers could read e-mail or even watch the news on their sleeves while hot-footing it from one meeting to another. “



  1. It would be interesting to see a whole suit or cloak made from this stuff. Attach a computer and a small camera and you could have the ultimate camouflage.
