Most users of electronic books know that the device’s display is very fragile. Many owners of these devices complain that sometimes the weakest impact on the surface of the table can crack a display. Probably, the problem is exaggerated a bit in the most cases, but it would be nice to get a more reliable screen that will not crack due to the careless use. It is likely that the problem will be solved in the next few months as AUO Company has created a flexible e-paper, which is resistant to accidental falls.
Besides other advantages, the AUO’s flexible e-paper is able to work from the flexible solar panels that were designed specifically for this project. This development is called Unplugged Flexible E-paper. The company has already introduced a real prototype of such flexible e-paper, but the release date of the project and the price of e-paper are not known yet. At least, the Unplugged Flexible E-paper is no longer just an idea that exists in the form of a computer model, technically it is all achievable, and as we can see that is implemented.
