LG.Philips unveils world's first colour e-paper display

LG.Philips LCD set to release the first ever colour electronic paper display - and it's the same size as a sheet of A4.

LG.Philips LCD has developed what it claimed is the world's first colour electronic-paper display.

The E-paper is similar in size to a sheet of A4, can be viewed from any angle, and can be bent without the image being distorted.

This follows the release by the same company in 2006 of a similar, black and white display, also the first of its kind.

Thin-Films Transistors are arranged on a metal foil and plastic substrate, rather than the traditional glass, which is why the E-paper can recover its original shape even after having been bent.

As well as allowing LG.Philips LCD's customers to create new products with this technology, Mr In-Hae Chung, the company's chief technology officer, said that it would also contribute to saving natural resources, adding that "this represents the next generation in display technology."
