Same technology Liquavista has developed. Would be great if this put pressure on amazon/Liquavista to speeden up the process of commercializing the technology

With 1cm square pixels it might not lead to an e-reader that will fit any of my pockets. Could be great for large signage though.

Here's a link to the actual press release instead of Good E Readers short blurb...

South China Normal University Announces Latest Achievements in Color Video Electronic Paper
If this is what their normal university is capable of then I'd like to see what their abnormal university has up its sleeve.

Just hold it a bit further away

Should cheer Jon up at least, an eReader that won't fit in a pocket

I'm more worried about fitting it onto the lot my house is on -- to match the resolution of an Aura One, a quick calculation says the display would be 23.40 by 17.55 metres. For the metrically challenged, 76.78 by 57.58 feet (arrived at by using the statement that a 32x32 pixel display is 40cmx40cm or 1.25x1.25 cm per pixel). The display would be best viewed from a distance of 42.97 metres or 141 feet (retina distance for 2.03ppi display).

I would need a bigger house.

So, drive in reading.

Could be a new trend, we'll get rid of these new fangled moving pictures
