Time for E-ink: Seiko announces the first active-matrix watch

Here’s an interesting little tidbit; Seiko just announced that they are going to producing the world’s first active matrix e-ink timepiece. That’s right, a wristwatch that uses e-reader technology to display the time. Could we be looking at the next LCD display technology?

It’s worth your time to look at the video, and not just for the glimpse of the e-ink watch. There’s also a really interesting looking timepiece at the five minute mark. At any rate, we really don’t know much about Seiko’s new project. All we do know is that the display is 300dpi, displays the time, date, and a world clock. No word on price, no availability.. No idea if it’ll even be available in the U.S.
