Dynamic color changing film for architecture

E-Textiles 2017-2027: Technologies, Markets, Playe
E Ink Holdings, a leading innovator of electronic ink technology in the world, has announced that E Ink Prism™, the groundbreaking product designed to transform the way spaces and surroundings are experienced, will be available in seven different colors: Voyage (dark blue), Daydream (cyan), Blush (red), Sprout (green), Zest (yellow), Harvest (brown) and Waltz (black). Manufacturers and designers will now have the ability to integrate new colors of Prism into architecture materials to create dynamically changing environments.
 
Integrated with traditional architectural materials, E Ink Prism delivers a completely new and dynamic way to create one-of-a-kind experiences, elevate corporate branding or add interactive functionality. E Ink Prism's paint-like appearance, color palette, wide-ranging compatibility with materials (e.g., decorative panels, glass, marker boards and laminates) and shapes make it highly suitable for many architectural applications. Furthermore, the film can be custom programmed to dynamically switch colors in nearly any pattern, shape, speed and sequence, making it the ideal technology to transform the commercial, hospitality, transportation, healthcare, retail and education markets.
 
"E Ink Prism's potential to change the way we experience public spaces is boundless," said Paul Apen, Chief Strategy Officer at E Ink. "There are few limitations for how and where Prism can be used, making it a perfect medium for architecture and design, and other applications, such as sales promotion. E Ink technology is known for revolutionizing the user experience across the eReader, retail, transportation and digital signage markets, and Prism is poised to do the same for the architecture market."
 
Printed, Organic & Flexible Electronics Forecasts,
E Ink Prism utilizes the same patented bi-stable ink technology as E Ink's current line of eReaders, wearables and shelf-labels. However, unlike traditional E Ink films that use only black and white pigments, Prism includes color pigments in larger size films for use in architecture and design. E Ink Prism also showcases the following features:
 
  • Fully programmable - gives content providers and designers greater creative freedom.
  • Fully reflective - provides a print or paint-like appearance and a natural visual experience.
  • Low power consumption - requires ultra-low power only during a visual change with no electrical outlets required.
  • Rugged and customizable - can be sized to be compatible with most configurations, patterns, and materials.
