Ink invention is attributed to the Chinese –which have invented it 2500 years B.C in order to remain stories captured-. Nowadays, the ink has the same purpose; but it is not made by natural and digital dyes but with spheres charged electrically in order to display letters on a screen without glare –which can be read under the sun or even adjust it as we want.
Ten years ago when university scientists at the USA have started to work on a futurist project that today is reality. It was not a bad idea to replace the paper that came from centuries ago for ultramodern screens – with a card thickness and, of course, portable-. They had started working at that time and today –ten years later- they are already for sale at an affordable price .
The screen is formed by thousands of small balls electrically charged –the half was on white and the other half on black-. Besides being unfinished painted –each hemisphere have different polarity-. When they are activated and depending on the position of the thousands of those spheres situated on the page, they start forming letters, words, paragraphs… Simple but effective –and the best is its own electric consumption which allows the battery life of all devices even for weeks!
However, the electronic reading has loads of aspects to improve in our society –as the vegetable-based inks that from its beginning was hard to set up at school’s inkwells, offices from the beginning of the XX century –when they were the only option to write. Then, we have passed to rechargeable and disposable pens, later to ink cartridges for typewrites and the giant leap was to the printer cartridge. As consumers, we have to take the decisive leap forward to accept that it has already arrived to stay, because that will be the only device for reading.
