Fujitsu Bendable Electronic Color Display - With Memory

Bendable electronic color displays using very low power have just been announced by Fujitsu. The flexible screen has an image memory function that keeps a vivid color picture in view without expending electricity.

Here's a list of performance attributes and features:

  • Image memory function that continuous display of the same image even when electricity is turned off.
  • Screen image can be changed using minimal electricity consumption equivalent to the weak radiowaves used in contactless IC cards.
  • New technology consumes only one one-hundredth to one ten-thousandth the energy of conventional display technologies.
  • New electronic paper is constructed of three displaying layers - red, blue, and green. Since no color filters or polarizing layers are required, it features color that is significantly more vivid than conventional reflective-type LCDs.
  • Proprietary Fujitsu technology ensures that screen color is unaffected even when the screen is bent or pressed with fingers.
  • Because the screen image does not require repetitive updates to be maintained, the screen does not flicker.

    The display should be perfect for a variety of applications, including posters or bulletins placed on curved surfaces like kiosks or columns. These posters, bulletins and displays could be continuously updated with new information or advertising.

    In his 1976 story World Out of Time, science fiction author Larry Niven wrote about a "television that unrolled like a poster" - read more about Larry Niven's poster tv. See the article on World's first film substrate-based bendable color electronic paper featuring image memory function.
