Can ink screen still have new vitality? It’s a great way

Recently, Goodread, a company, came up with a more powerful folding ink screen than the Kindle. < / P > < p > in order to make the learning enthusiasts get the thrill of “digging walls and stealing light”, the manufacturers also add LED lights to the prototypes, so that people can read novels they dare not read in the daytime. < / P > < p > however, I believe that most computer users know about e-ink screen devices not because of it or the Kindle, but because of yotaphone. < / P > < p > for example, foreign media on the ink screen, through the display of their own logo, made a unique appearance design, how to change it. < / P > < p > the electronic ink screen was first developed in Japan in the 1970s, and then perfected by MIT in the 1990s. < / P > < p > so the gray Kindle can be used for more than 10 days, or even months of standby time, and then we can continue to use it to cover instant noodles. < / P > < p > when you see this, you will surely think that if you let the electronic ink screen support color display, wouldn’t it be better to replace the OLED screen with it? < / P > < p > although the power consumption of the e-ink screen is extremely low, and it does not even need power to display static images, the “shadow” problem and low refresh rate have always been the pain points of the e-ink screen. < / P > < p > for example, as long as the displayed content is “refreshed”, there will be traces left on the screen, just like the old OLED screen burning. < / P > < p > at present, the mainstream solution of shadow problem is to quickly “reset” the black-and-white screen flicker every time the display content is refreshed. < / P > < p > because of these two main problems, the e-ink screen can only be limited to e-readers or e-paper products, and can not become the choice of mainstream mobile phones. < / P > < p > a small-size electronic ink screen is added, which makes it more convenient to read books outside than a Kindle, and also saves more electricity than an OLED screen. < / P > < p > some people have tried to use them to play hand games such as collapse 3 or King’s glory. However, under the problem of refresh rate and shadow, it depends on whether the experience is good or not. < / P > < p > at present, domestic manufacturers have been optimizing and upgrading the refresh rate and shadow of the e-ink screen. Generally speaking, the user experience will be much better than that of a few years ago. However, due to the “hard damage” of e-ink screen technology, these problems can only be slowed down and will not disappear. < p > < p > at the beginning of this year, the color electronic ink screen scheme, which was first put forward by domestic manufacturers such as palm reader and iFLYTEK, has also attracted a lot of discussion and attention in the industry. < / P > < p > it has always been a pity that only black and white content can be displayed. The appearance of color electronic ink screen can improve the reading experience to another level. < / P > < p > large screen e-paper is closer to our commonly used paper and notebook, and can provide more use scenarios, such as writing, Kanban, etc., which is an important step to replace paper. < p > < p > for example, Sony’s 13.3-inch handwritten light electronic paper costs 5000 yuan at any time; some domestic 10 inch alternative products also cost 2000 yuan. < / P > < p > some manufacturers have made larger sizes. For example, Yuantai technology, a Taiwanese manufacturer that acquired e-ink, has produced 32 inch electronic Kanban products, which has never been seen in the market. < / P > < p > at present, many electronic tags adopt color electronic ink screen. The screen is not very large, but it is enough to display information such as price. It can also realize synchronous adjustment of real-time data through Wi Fi networking. < p > < p > the commercial field can replace a series of long-term static display contents such as propaganda posters, road signs, station signs, price labels, warehouse boards, etc. < / P > < p > perhaps, the use of ink screen will be more than that of OLED and other screens, and it can meet our daily needs. But before that, let’s wait patiently for the ink screen to become more practical. < / P > < p > I wonder if you can accept electronic ink screen instead of paper as our main tool for reading and writing?
