We're certainly no stranger to coole-paperconcepts, so this concept is certainly not new, but what is worth noting about this one from Plastic Logic, aside from the fact that there's actually a video showing the paper in action, is that it's actually being shown in a useful application, namely as a newspaper.
Plastic Logic is all about being the leader in electronic/plastic innovation. From their site: "Plastic Logic is developing and exploiting world-class technology for manufacturing printed plastic electronic circuits. These circuits are constructed using solution processing and direct-write techniques and consist of transistors and other components that are produced from polymers and a variety of other materials."Since, I'm guessing, no one reading this will have had some real hands-on experience with this kind of e-paper, instead of trying to describe it, just check out this YouTube video and all of the official pics and vids from Plastic Logic's site.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
