Summary
Electronic paper, also known as electronic ink (e-ink) or intelligent paper, is a display device that mimics the appearance of ordinary ink on paper.

The contrast ratio in electronic displays available as of 2008 approaches newspaper, and newly developed displays are slightly better. An ideal e-paper display can be read in direct sunlight without the image appearing to fade. Technologies include Gyricon, electrophoretics, electrowetting, interferometry, and plasmonics.

Applications of electronic visual displays include electronic shelf labels and digital sig
