Somehow I think you guys don't get what e-paper is.
It's not a replacement for a monitor with its 4096 colors. It is meant to be a replacement for - you guessed it - paper.
Instead of getting a thick newspaper every day, you buy one e-paper and just download the newspaper to it.

Many people I know are looking forward to something like that for reading books and mangas on it. And since books/ebooks are very small in filesize (only text) a very small flashchip will do as storage.

Newspapers however will stay for a few more decades I guess.

This is probably a stupid idea, but if the sheets are transparent then maybe they could stack them 3 or more deep and create some "true" 3D effects on a display. :)

i also saw where this could be used in many other ways, besides e-paper...from what i saw this stuff will be able to roll up like a map...

in the future they see

video cell phones that look like pens and unroll a touch screen
walls in homes that are one huge screen
glasses and sunglasses with built in screens
even vehicles could have paint replaced with this technology (good for military)

pretty cool stuff...

Like that car in James Bond that has cameras that display what they see on one side on the other side so it makes the car invisible lol...

That was awesome. Maybe one day they'll make something close to that.

What exactly is E-Paper? Why would you use it for LCDs?
