Electronic Paper has been developed as a display by using funcitonalized polymer materials , but unlike the monitors for TVs and personal computers. It was mainly developed as a medium for illustrating static images (still pictures) for reading. Electronic Paper requires no electrical power to maintain the image, except when writing in new materials.
It is anticipated to become a medium that can be used in place of paper. This leads to energy-saving and reduces the strain on the environment.
