“E Ink Holdings, the company that developed the concept of electronic paper and the technology used for e-ink screens on dedicated e-readers, has developed E Ink Mobius, a new version of the technology that is more flexible, lighter and more durable than previous e-ink screens. […] The device is designed specifically for classroom curriculum materials; it has a 1200 x 1600 screen resolution (16 level grayscale) and also features handwriting recognition that allows users to make normal notes right on the screen as if it were paper. Mancini said the device is like a “virtual printer” that allows you to download and display all kinds of documents at their original size for easy viewing.”
