A-DATA Info SD card
Another Honoree for the Innovations 2007 Design and Engineering Awards is the Info SD card, by Taiwanese company A-DATA. Solving a perennial problem of flash memory, the Info will be the first SD card with an integrated, bi-stable display, indicating exactly how much memory is left at any given time. "Bi-stable" simply refers to the fact that the display will always active, needing no electricity once the card is removed. The Info SD should premiere in January at the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
