First we all wanted colour for our ereaders… and now 3D too? Hmmmmm…..
Delta Electronics, a huge Chinese maker of all manner of display systems and lighting have just announced that they are well advanced with the design of a 3D e-ink technology, and intend to have it on the market some time in 2011.
I am slightly boggled out at this idea, and can’t quite see how it would benefit us as readers…. But I suppose for comics and magazines it could be fun. Apparently they only have a couple more technical problems to solve, and then… Whoooosh… into production they will go.
Further, they have announced that they will also be bringing out an ereader (2D) before the end of this year, though no details are available about this one. I assume it will be the platform that will ultimately be graced with the wonders of spectacles free 3D reading.
I wonder if this will actually happen? Or will this be yet another bright idea that never reaches production? Been so many of those in ereader land over the last couple of years.
Anyhow, if I hear anything more about this, I shall at once report on it to you.
Watch this space.
