Electric "Paper" have developed !
Recently researchers have developed the new technology of electric " Paper " . That is really amazing,right ? Actually. this is the kind of flexible bendable display that is ultra thin. The depth of display thin as the paper that within 1 mircometer. The most surprised one is its enegy just one-tenth of Kindle.
The bendable display reflects light to produce as many colours as an LED screen, and unlike the latter, it thrives in brightly lit areas.
The team has so far built and tested a few pixels of the material, and while it’s not yet ready for application, they say manufacturing a product with the display is likely soon to come.
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology stumbled upon the combination to create the electronic display while working on placing conductive polymers on nanostructures.
The thin, flexible material relies on the polymers’ ability to control how light is absorbed
and reflected. These polymers cover the surface of the material, and guide electric signals throughout the full display to create high resolution images. These polymers cover the

The results are described in a paper published to the journal Advanced Materials
‘The “paper” is similar to the Kindle tablet,’ says Andreas Dahlin. It isn’t lit up like a
standard display, but rather reflects the external light which illuminates it. Therefore it
works very well where there is bright light, such as out in the sun, in contrast to standard LED displays that work best in darkness. ‘At the same time it needs only a tenth of the energy that a Kindle tablet uses, which itself uses much less energy than a tablet LED display.’
According to the researchers, the samples they've so far built and tested use the same red, green, and blue colours which combine to give LEDs their vibrant displays. Moving forward, they will build pixels to cover much larger areas.
