    E-Ink mode triggered by ambient light.

    If it can display video, it's not e-ink Wink

     

    This looks to be the same sort of technology as used in the OLPC's dual-mode TFT display:  it had a regular color screen and a high-resolution monochrome "e-ink"-like mode for use in direct sunlight.

    Well, Yes. This is not really "e-ink" but instead a monochromatic display.  Ambient light trigger seems cool.

     

    I like their design on swivel camera (shown in the 2nd video). It's got HDMI out too.

    I believe this is Pixel QI, which is from the same folks that did OLPC. Not bad tech, as it gives decent viewing in any lighting condition and pretty darn good batter life. However, mirasol looks far more promising. There's several Pixel Qi devices being shipped shortly, while I'm not aware of any mirasol devices, however.

    Wow.. I just checked out Mirasol display tech. Awesome. Just Awesome.  I like the fact that it is full color and the form factor man. That is the perfect form factor.

     

     The thing with Notion Ink's Adam though is, they got a full fledged OS on their Tablet. Plus HDMI output and the Swivel camera. I would say a good competition for iPad.

    There's several Android based systems using Pixel Qi displays, though I agree that the Notion Ink system is interesting. Not sure I care for the touch pad on the back of the device, though it's an interesting idea. Mobile devices are certainly looking better and better, though.
