The New E Ink technology will make e-reader displays more colorful, allowing individuals to use them in a wider variety of activities. With the new ACeP, users will be able to browse magazines, comics, and other colorful material on their e-readers in full quality.
Even though tablets and smartphones are creating serious competition to e-readers, the latter are still marketed as being safer for the public. The reason for which e-readers are recommended for reading is that they do not emit blue light, a light that affects the brain, tricking it into staying awake for longer periods of time.
The only downside of e-readers, until now, was the fact that they were only available with a black and white display. Newer generations tried to introduce some color into their displays, but their quality was far behind that of tablets or smartphones.
In order to solve that problem, Kindle came up with the E Ink display that uses “Advanced Color ePaper,” or ACeP. This new technology allows colors to be projected for every pixel, instead of the previous method that used blue, red, and green side-by-side.
The ACeP displays are capable of reproducing all the colors in the primary spectrum while also maintain the real paper display that doesn’t damage the eyes of the users, or keeps them from falling asleep at night.
According to the producers, the new E Ink devices will function in low-power exactly like their monochromatic equivalents. Furthermore, they will be as legible in powerful and low-light conditions.
Due to the fact that the new generation of e-readers that are powered by the E Ink technology are capable of rendering a wide chromatic array, users will be able to browse magazines, comics, and other materials that were better suited for tablets. Until now, that is.
Kindle has not yet announced a specific time when the new devices will be made available on the open market. However, when that happens, there might be a possibility that e-readers will slowly replace iPads.
