E Ink

E Ink the company that produces Kindle’s low-power display has introduced a new writing display technology called JustWrite. It is a display that can be written on with no Latency and offers monochrome aesthetic albeit in negative this time, with white on black.

“The JustWrite film features one of E Ink’s proprietary electronic inks and offers similar benefits as E Ink’s other product lines: a paper-like experience with a good contrast and reflective display without a backlight,” the company writes. “The JustWrite film is an all plastic display, making it extremely durable and lightweight, with the ability to be affixed and removed easily, enabling writing surfaces in a variety of locations.”

It achieves the latency power by having the new display be driven by its stylus itself rather than the TFT (thin-film-transistor LCD) backplates which have been used for previous displays. The E Ink technology is also minimal power consumption and low cost. Whereas the change means only the Stylus itself needs to be powered, the screen itself requires a small amount of power to refresh itself to erase any writing or drawings.
