E Ink Corporation is an innovator in digital advertising and e-book technology. Its developments are used by world famous brands such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Casio, Citizen, Lexar, Kobo, Motorola, Pricer, Samsung, Sony and Yota to offer people devices such as e-readers, mobile phones, electronic price tags, billboards, smart watches, etc.P. And this year, at CES, representatives of E Ink announced plans to get into the interior goods market, in particular, to wallpaper.
The company created the so-called dynamic wallpaper Prism. Using technology similar to that used in electronic devices, it will be possible to decorate entire surfaces with a new material that changes color and pattern.
Prism wallpaper will help you change the look of the entire room, including the ceiling, and not just the walls. It is too early to say that technology will catch people’s hearts, but it is already quite interesting to see how technology breaks into the world of finishing materials.
E Ink Reveals Some Details About Prism. So, the wallpaper uses a bistable E Ink display, which is also found in devices such as the famous Amazon Kindle. However, in Prism, this display has a different color rendering.
Electronic ink technology is unique in that it can be used in many other applications beyond readers and other display media. E Ink chairman says Prism will turn interiors into living spaces.
Prism can decorate everything: walls, ceiling, doors, etc.P. Then, at the touch of a button, you can change the colors of the room or play simple animations on the surface.
The company also says Prism can serve as an indoor navigator. For example, in university buildings or hospitals.
E-ink did not give exact figures for power consumption, but they said the Prism display consumes “very little electricity”. They also commented that the product is very durable.
Representatives of the company expect that by the end of 2015 there will be examples of large-scale use of their new product, but prices for it have not yet been determined.
