E-Books and E-Paper: Are we nearly there yet?
The computer, no matter how hard its designers have tried, has never replaced paper; the “paperless office” is far from paperless. We don’t like to read from a computer screen, so we print onto bulky, environmentally unsound paper. With the invention of electronic paper all that is set to change. In just a few years, one digital device could comfortably replace all our paper needs.

Abstract

The computer, no matter how hard its designers have tried, has never replaced paper; the “paperless office” is far from paperless. We don’t like to read from a computer screen, so we print onto bulky, environmentally unsound paper. With the invention of electronic paper all that is set to change. In just a few years, one digital device could comfortably replace all our paper needs.
