Bridgestone Working on a Color e-Paper Device with Wacom Pen Input

bridgestoneepaper I’m waiting to see who will be the first e-Paper or e-Book maker who brings a device to market that uses real pen input. I’m not sure Bridgestone (yes the tire manufacturer) will be the first one, but this device sure looks interesting.

Apparently they’ve not only got a color e-Paper device in the works but it is using Wacom’s electromagnetic induction technology for pen input on a passive matrix panel.  There’s a quick video (very dark) that purports to show this working. Bridgestone has apparently increased the screen refresh rate to 0.8 seconds from the previous version that was in the area of 10 to 15 seconds.

    Will color eBook readers arrive in time to revive magazine business (the so-called Slicks)?
