Android on E-Ink Proof of Concept (VIDEO)

Check out the video below which is sure to raise even more talks of a Kindle-like Android device.  The team at MOTO Development Group have put together a proof of concept for Android on an E-Ink display.  Although the video shows just how much flicker is associated with the refreshing of this type of screen, it’s a great step forward for getting Android on yet another type of device.

At the end of the video, Mike asks for your ideas as to how you could improve on this idea or where you think it could be applied.  To reach them with your suggestions, email them at collaborate (AT) labs.moto.com.

    That’s an awesome video!! :)

    Is it a strictly monochrome screen, or does it do levels of grey? The platform provides some sub-pixel font rendering, but I’m wondering if the algorithm could be modified slightly to produce better results on screens like this.

    Also, you could easily replace the Launcher homescreen with any other Android app, such as a book reader front-end, which might launch over to other installed apps.

    Are these screens touch-able, or would it only be using a dpad for navigation?

    Hardware hacks are always cool stuff. :)
