Paper View: cheap paper-thin TV screens

No; not Pay Per View, but Paper View

The Guardian has the full story on the cheap Paper View technology by Siemens:

Siemens spokesman Norbert Aschenbrenner claimed the new screens, which are literally paper thin, can do everything a regular TV screen or computer monitor can do, but cost a fraction of the price.
"The technology makes it possible to put moving images directly onto paper ... at a cost that would make it economical to use on everything from magazines to cigarette packets ... where the moving images would give more detailed instructions than any photo could ever do," he said.

The color images can display anything that a normal monitor or TV can, at a slightly lower quality, for about £30 per square meter.

Cool Or What?
