There has been one thing that I have wondered about, when looking at the development of E Paper , will it replace the computer, does it want to replace the computer and will it be allowed to replace the computer.
Looking at the development of E Paper one would assume that in the beginning this was to assist the resolution and readability of the computer screen back in the 1970s.
If we view the facts so far with regards to the development, E Paper has been developed as a viewing and reading tablet and a device that you can down load or transfer reading material , in general terms thats it.
In non technical terms E paper could be a tablet that has selected software parameters and is designed with a flexible material to give the feeling that it has paper properties.
So with these observations will the E Paper be a competitor to the PC!!
I generally don’t think so, but with my next breath I hope they do not over engineer this fantastic opportunity, coming from an engineering back ground we try to make things simple and easy to design, it should be said that I hope it finds it place within this technological media and also the work place.
In my other posts I have blown caution to the wind and stated that this may have already happened, let’s keep it simple, design it for its purpose.
Would we be right to assume that the computer and E Paper will both have a rightful place weather it’s for social media or within the work place hopefully both will be able to work along side each other.
