    Seiko Epson Develops High-Resolution E-Paper
    Japan’s
    Seiko Epson has developed a prototype electronic-paper display that
    offers the world’s highest resolution, the company said Monday.The
    7.1-inch screen that Seiko Epson has developed is approximately the
    same size as an A6 piece of paper (105 by 148 millimeters) and has a
    resolution of 1,536 by 2048 pixels, the company said.Electronic paper
    is a hot area of display research at present. The screens are made on
    sheets of plastic and so are flexible and thin just like a piece of
    paper, hence their name. Developers envisage that they could be used as
    foldable or rollable displays instead of newspapers. Because they are
    digital, the news could be updated in real time or even include
    video.The prototype screen combines several technologies that Seiko
    Epson has previously developed, said Alastair Bourne, a spokesman for
    the company, which is based in Suwa, Japan. The technologies include
    flexible memory chips, development of which was announced last year.
    The chips can be built onto the same plastic substrate as the display
    and can bend with the screen.The screen is partly based on technology
    from E Ink. The two companies and Seiko Watch last year began sales of
    a wristwatch with a flexible electronic paper display. The new
    prototype display is not only bigger than that used in the watch, but
    is also an active type, which means it can show moving images. The
    watch display wasn’t capable of that, said Epson
