E Ink Launches Prism, First Dynamic Architecture Product Incorporating Color Changing Electronic Ink Technology

E Ink announced E Ink Prism, a major initiative set to deliver unique and dynamic materials for architecture and design incorporating its new color changing electronic ink technology. Prism is unique in enabling architects and designers to transform the way spaces and surroundings are experienced. Traditionally the design elements found in architecture are either static paint or power-hungry digital displays. Prism delivers a completely new and dynamic capability. It can be incorporated into many existing architectural products to transform an environment, create a one-of-a-kind experience, elevate corporate branding, or build an interactive setting. Prism materials can be programmed to change automatically, in response to external stimulus, or remain static. Prism provides architects and designers with more flexibility of design and a unique way of transforming spaces. Commercial lobbies, airport terminals, and public auditoriums can now automatically change color and enhance the human sensory experience. Customer reception areas will be more interesting and visually exciting, retailers can build dynamic staging elements for their marketing campaigns, and exhibitors can maximize presentations to boost visitor engagement. E Ink electronic ink technology and products, including Prism, showcase the following features: Fully programmable - gives content providers and designers greater creative freedom. Fullyreflective - provides a print or paint-like appearance and a natural visual experience. Low power consumption - requires very small amount of power only during a visual change with no electrical outlets required.
