The E Ink persistency contest is over, we have two winners

Our E Ink Persistency contest is over, and we selected the two winning ideas:

  • Business cards ("no need to print new ones and throw hundreds of old ones away, when your email-address changes")
  • Menus in restaurants (many people suggested this, so the winner will be the first one who did).

There were lot's of other good ideas. Some others that we really liked were the recyclable/re-usable labels for clothes / consumer goods, the free design game table, road signs and public transport timetables. There were some great ideas in there that sadly are not practical due to E Ink limitations - the screens are monochrome and cannot be made large enough for some applications. Maybe in the future!

E Ink will contact the winners directly and they will ship them an e-reader of thier choice (Kindle paperwhite or a Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight).
