World’s First Electronic Paper-Based Flexible Color Screen Developed
E Ink and Plastic Logic came together to develop the world’s first flexible and color display based on ACeP technology. The new screen is expected to be used in wearable technologies in the future. E Ink introduced a new technology in May 2016. The company‘s new groundbreaking technology in the electric ink world introduced colored electronic paper into our lives. The technology developed by E Ink utilized what the company called ‘Advanced Color ePaper (ACeP)’.
Although ACeP technology debuted in 2016, it has only been used in one area so far. After more than four years, E Ink‘s ACeP technology is available for various uses. E Ink‘s technology has been combined with panels developed by another company. E Ink‘s partnership, Plastic Logic, has developed E Ink‘s new color and flexible color display called ‘Legio‘ based on ACeP technology. Plastic Logic, which has previously developed flexible, glass-free electrophoretic displays, presented the ACeP technology as an advanced organic Thin Film Transistor (TFT – Thin Film Transistor) screen.
According to the statement of E Ink, the screens developed by Plastic Logic stand out with their high resolution as well as their lightness. However, it has extremely low power consumption. But, TFTs can also be an ideal choice in the field of wearable technologies with their thinner and lighter structures. In addition, the statement shared by E Ink and Plastic Logic also included a detail about the wearable technology industry. The statement was given the value that this industry will reach in 2026 according to IDTechEx data. Accordingly, wearable technologies will reach the level of 150 billion dollars in 2026.
