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?
