Seiko has deicded to take the Revolutionary technology of E-Ink and add it to a new line of watches.
For those of you who don’t know E-ink, they are the makers of Electronic Paper, or E-paper. Makers of displays that are on “Paper” thin plastic. When an electrical charge is supplied to the E-paper, the particles will move from side to side creating an image.
In Seiko’s case, it’s creating a stylish watch with a face that is crisper than an LCD screen and much sleeker then your normal watch. Amazingly it can be read easily in well-lit or dim areas.
The special edition watch will be released in Japan by January 2006 and is priced at US $2230 (1900 Euros).
