The E Ink persistency contest, your chance to win a new e-reader

Update: the contest is over, we have two winners with two great ideas!

Last week we posted about E Ink display persistency - and the fact that those displays can actually retain an image for years. Now it's your turn to try and think of applications for this feature. Besides making some nice B&W photo frames - what cool things can be done with a display that can stay persistent for such long times without a power source? For example gadgets that only need to change the display once a day...

Just post your idea as a comment below, and be sure to leave your e-mail (you can also send the e-mail address in private, of course). We'll choose the two best ideas, and award them with new e-readers (either a Kindle paperwhite or a Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight). This content is open for everyone. E Ink, who were kind enough to give away the two e-readers, will ship them worldwide. We'll choose the new winners on December 11th.
