Yanko Design's portable e-paper reader

Yanko e-paper reader

Another new concept from Yanko Design is the ROEM, a reader that exploits the emerging technology of e-paper. The paper displays text and images in monochrome, using a minimum of power while still being bright enough to combat glare. And while chargable through conventional means, the ROEM also has a backup in the form of piezoelectric material, which can return power to the battery simply by "fanning" the device. Users scroll through their material with a one-handed interface similar to a mobile phone. Aside from books and images, the ROEM should further be able to run simple software such as a dictionary, a music player, and an image enhancer. No production timeline has been set out.
