I also like that kind of advanced display, but I still like the traditional smell of a new magazine, it makes me want to not only read but also to touch and feel the paper is kind of different thing that new technology cannot offer, I suppose. But, finally it will still feel all the same in terms of reading style.

I've heard of stuff like this in development.

@Hollowedsol - Sorta, I have heard that displays like these have applications for both businesses and consumers, as they should be pretty cheap. The consumer could get these on the cheap, to use as a way to read books/newspapers, and businesses could sell standalone devices that only display what they put on it.

Barring an international paper shortage crisis though, I don't see paper disappearing anytime soon.

I'd like to see this made cheap enough that any person could pick one up and not feel like they're pissing away money if they dispose of it (recycle it of course, as it is 'environmentally friendly'). In other words, make it about the price of a newspaper (perhaps having actual newspapers and magazines available in this fashion).

On a side note, I heard of a similar (if not identical) type of paper that they can print on like this, that can be used to display electronic information. It only refreshes at like, 5Hz, so no video or anything, but more than adequate for digital newspapers and magazines, and stuff.
