Researchers from the University of Cincinnati have demonstrated that regular paper can be a flexible host material for Electrowetting displays. These new displays can theoretically be almost as cheap as printing a normal magazine. They say that in 3-5 years this can actually be commercialized, but these estimates are always optimistic...

The researchers say that paper is the "perfect substrate" for Electrowetting displays: it's flexible and cheap, and shows the same performance as glass.

Electrowetting displays themselves are not new: and LiquaVista are actively engaged in getting them to market, and hopes to do so soon. Here's an interview we conducted with their CTO back in March 2010.
