Electronic paper

Technology marches on!
Scientists in the Netherlands say they’ve developed an “electronic paper” that will enable books, newspapers, or virtually any surface to show full-color movies, television or email. It’s actually a paper-thin plastic with embedded electronically-connected dots. The system needs a power source, like a cellphone or PDA, and researchers say the first products are likely 3-4 years away. Just imagine the possibilities. “Excuse me, sir, but there’s a bulletin on your shirtsleeve.” Could it be a boon for local television?
