E Ink and Plastic Logic have teamed up to launch new Legio™-brand flexible color displays. They say that the display is flexible, designed on the Advanced Color e-Paper (ACeP) technology, and can be used on wearable products.
The glass-free organic Thin Film Transistor (oTFT) displays are lightweight and ultra-low-power. E Ink claims they're more durable, thinner, and lighter than glass-based TFTs. That, according to the company, makes oTFT displays “ideal” for wearables. For instance, designers could build Legio-branded displays into smart clothing and jewelry. Until now, ACeP displays have mainly been used for signage, which of course doesn't require panels to be flexible.
