KDDI wireless e-paper

KDDI has shown a prototype of its Portable Viewing System that can display images wirelessly transferred from cellphones on a 13.1-inch electronic paper display in color. What KDDI claims is the first electronic paper display capable of showing images stored in cellphones, the system uses infrared waves to transfer the image from the phone to the display. The display uses Bridgestone's Electronic Liquid Powder technology capable of reproducing 4,096 colors. To redraw the near A4-paper size image, the display needs 12 seconds.

The display only has a power button, as all controls come from software on the handset sending the information and source data. KDDI developed the system for use in the finance and insurance industries, where a need for a tool that can display personal yet secure information was identified. Using their handsets, users can remotely lock and delete the data sent to the display. [via Tech-On]
