We look back at the year that catapulted electronic paper into the mainstream. From truckside displays to digital museum labels and smart urban furniture, e-paper was the technology on everyone’s lips in 2016.
The newly opened Estonian National Museum uses E Ink displays to enhance the visitor experience. The real-time, digital gallery cards are the latest in the series of technological advancements that electronic paper is bringing to the museum space.
Museums can keep pace with the times and changing attendance rates by adopting a modern and interactive way of presenting the items on display. The AMLABEL Digital Gallery Display is an editable, real-time in-gallery digital label developed on electronic paper to replace existing gallery cards.
We chatted with Barrett Comiskey, one of the fathers of electronic ink, about the beginnings of the technology and what the future holds for the energy-saving display. Along with JD Albert and Joseph Jacobson, his co-inventors, Comiskey has just been inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame, joining the likes of Alexander Graham Bell and Steve Jobs.
We love seeing our electronic paper solutions used in new and imaginative ways. And what could be more imaginative than using one of our tablets to project interactive teeth selfies in an amazing new nature gallery from Derby Museums.
Museums are an excellent way of spending your time and learning something new in the process. But many of have problems fully engaging the visitor and serving different needs of the visitors at the same time. This can be resolved elegantly through the implementation of an interactive digital signage system.
