Engineering professor shows electronic display on paper

Engineering professor shows electronic display on paperThe electrowetting process used for creating e-book reader displays can be applied to paper as well, and with similar results, University of Cincinnati electrical engineering professor Andrew Steckl has revealed. It does require a specific kind of paper, process and fabrication technique, but Steckl has already demonstrated his findings. This could eventually lead to disposable e-readers made of paper and capable of displaying high-resolution color video in bright environments.

Steckl hopes this could lead to paper-based gadgets that can store information and are very cheap. The displays would be very fast, full-color and users could throw out the devices at the end of the day or week. Such disposing wouldn't be too harmful for the environment, Steckl believed. The technology could be applied for newspapers, magazines or other periodicals.

Now, Steckl is looking for a commercial investor to take his research and development to the next stage. With sufficient investment, Steckl said a product could reach the market in about three to five years.
