A display technology start-up is creating a type of electronic "ink" that could lead to paper-thin screens by mid-decade.

E Ink will present and demonstrate its technology at the Society for Information Display's conference, which will take place June 3 to June 8 in San Jose, Calif.

E Ink's electronic ink is based on microcapsules that Vice President Russ Wilcox describes as similar to "a bunch of tiny magic 8-balls"--or electrically sensitive white chips that float in a ball of black dye. The chips rise or fall in the dye depending on an electric charge. Full story. --Richard Shim, ZDNet News
