Kent creates Improv, outs power-free writing LCD

Kent Displays' recent spin-off Improv Electronics today launched its first device as a unique power-free LCD input tablet. The Boogie Board LCD Writing Tablet uses a pressure-sensitive Reflex LCD made of impact-resistant and flexible plastic. The LCD is mass produced in the US on the first roll-to-roll line for flexible LCDs.

Reflex LCDs are reflective and bi-stable and therefore do not require power to generate or retain an image, but only to erase it. This is provided by a watch-like battery which is said to last for 50,000 erasures. A stylus is required and included, but a fingernail can also perform the task. The product is said to be environmentally friendly as it reduces actual paper use.

The Boogie Board is priced at $30, and Improv will supply it to hardware manufacturers for integration into their own products.
