This is the world's first monitor with an electronic ink display

It caught us by surprise: a monitor with an electronic ink screen, which can even play videos. How do you do that?

Anyone who has used an electronic ink screen, such as the one that Kindle ebook readers have, knows that they are the best choice for reading texts. They don't emit light, so they don't tire of sight. It's like reading a piece of paper.

But electronic ink displays have a significant limitation. Because of its technology, which handles real ink that is electronically re-placed on display, its refresh rate is very low. That's why they're only used to read text or comics, where the screen is fixed and the only move to make is to page.

All this theory erupts into a thousand pieces with Daesung Paperlike 253, the world's first electronic ink display monitor. Your refresh rate is so high that you can even play videos.

Dating is a Chinese company specialized in the manufacture of electronic ink screens, which it already uses on tablets and laptops, something that is very unusual.

However, it has gone a little further by manufacturing the first monitor with an electronic ink display. Daesung Paperlike 253 has a 25.3-inch display with 3K resolution (3,200 x 1,800 pixels) and standard connections to connect all kinds of devices: HDMI, Display Port, USB Type-C, etc.

Samsung has not revealed the refresh rate, but by the moving video, it is sensed to reach 50 or 60 Hz, more than enough to work on a PC. Because one of the features of electronic ink is that when the screen is fixed, for example, if you are reading something on a website or social network, or working on a PDF or document, the image does not consume, flash or emit light. So you don't tire of your eyesight.

Opening and closing windows, moving them, or editing text can be done without near latency, as on a conventional monitor.

And if you're writing a text, developing an app, or doing office work, making the monitor black and white doesn't matter too much.

How has Daesung managed to overcome the problem of the low refresh rate of electronic ink displays? It employs its own new chip called Daesung Turbo that uses algorithms, signal processing, and memory programming to accelerate the reorganization of ink within the screen, at speeds never seen before.

Thanks to its electronic ink display, the Daesung Paperlike 253 monitor becomes the most suitable for working for long hours, without tiring your eyesight.

Daesung Paperlike 253 seeks funding at Indiegogo, where he has already raised 7,000% of what he needed.
