Flexible electronic ‘paper’ display color spectrum rivals LED and uses less energy

By Stephanie Liverani / October 18, 2016

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology in Göteborg, Sweden, developed a new electronic “paper” that is bendable, ultra thin, and transmits the same rich color spectrum of a typical LED display—but it requires ten times less energy to power it than a Kindle e-reader.
