Manufacturers and designers will now have the ability to integrate these colours to enhance corporate branding or add interactive functionality to architectural features such as decorative panels, glass, marker boards and laminates. E Ink Prism’s paint-like appearance, colour palette and wide-ranging compatibility with materials and shapes make it suitable for many architectural applications.
The film can be custom programmed to dynamically switch colours in nearly any pattern, shape, speed and sequence.
“E Ink Prism's potential to change the way we experience public spaces is boundless,” said Paul Apen, Chief Strategy Officer at E Ink. “There are few limitations for how and where Prism can be used, making it a perfect medium for architecture and design, and other applications, such as sales promotion. E Ink technology is known for revolutionizing the user experience across the eReader, retail, transportation and digital signage markets, and Prism is poised to do the same for the architecture market.”
E Ink Prism utilizes the same patented bi-stable ink technology as E Ink’s current line of eReaders, wearables and shelf-labels. However, unlike traditional E Ink films that use only black and white pigments, Prism includes colour pigments in larger size films for use in architecture and design.
The fully programmable film requires ultra-low power only during a visual change and does not require any electrical outlets. It is fully reflective, rugged and customizable.
