The same kind of technology was shown off at CES back in 2006 (or was it 2005?) as well, but we're getting that much closer to a public release. If e-paper were to debut anytime soon and become affordable(i.e. <2020), then we are in for a major tech shock. It has the potential to be a fundamental sweep. Imagine if we could mass produce this. It would collapse the newspaper industry almost completely, yet lead to a mass reduction in the need for paper (ever heard of that popular expression "Wasting trees?") And then god knows what else! Put one on your desk. Watch a movie. Teacher finds out. Confiscates e-paper (or iPaper).
Funny: What if Apple called it iSheet? Cue endless initially-funny-then-lame rude jokes... (iSheet messages! iSheet ringtones! iSheet covers!)
