E Ink Corporation is the creator of electronic ink — the optical component of a proprietary film used in Electronic Paper Displays. Although futuristic in concept, electronic ink is a straightforward fusion of existing knowledge in chemistry, physics and electronics. E Ink displays offer high contrast, superior paper-like readability and low power consumption, drawing power only when switching the display.
