Kära alla,

Emellenåt hör vi talas om framtidens "digitala papper", som skall
fungera som ett mellanting mellan datorskärmen och det
traditionella papperet. Ibland kallas det också elektroniskt
papper eller "smart paper". Nu tycks Xerox på G att småningom gå
in i kommersiell produktion av en sådan typ av papper - se
nedanstående citerade telegram från Reuters. En undrar ju i all
stillhet vilka hanteringsrutiner (bibliografisk beskrivning,
klassificering, indexering, dokumentleverans (?) etc)
biblioteksvärlden kommer att utveckla för detta medium?

/ Mats D

Xerox will announce this week that it has partnered with 3M to
commercially produce electronic paper.  Electronic paper, which
has until now been a Xerox research project, is a reusable
electronic display that is similar to a computer screen but
almost as flexible as ordinary paper.  It could be used for such
innovations as electronic newspapers that add late-breaking news
even while being read.  The product uses a display technology
called "gyricon" created by Xerox almost 10 years ago.  Small
beads, similar to toner particles, are embedded in a uniform
pattern in a flexible binder sheet.  The beads rotate to display
one side to the viewer when a pattern of electrical voltage is
applied to the surface.  The image stays until a new pattern is
applied. Despite the new manufacturing deal, electronic paper
will not be released for at least another year.
