E-Ink. It powers everything from the YotaPhone 2 to the Amazon Kindle. It’s simultaneously one of the most understated and futuristic display technologies around. And it’s being put to use in devices and venues you’ve never even thought of. But what exactly is E-Ink, and how does it work?

That’s a question we had for the folks at E-Ink Corporation, the brains behind the world’s leading electrophoretic ink technology, and they were more than happy to answer it. In fact, they invited us to tour their Innovation Center and Headquarters facility in Massachusetts, down the road from their birthplace at MIT. There, we got a firsthand look at the technology behind E-Paper Displays: the technology’s underpinnings, its history, and even a few sneak previews of where E-Ink is headed next.

Join us, then, as we take a walk through the nearly two-decade-long history of electrophoretic ink and explain (in very simple terms) what makes the technology tick and why you should care. Then check out our YotaPhone 2 review to see E-Ink in action on a real-life EPD, and for a deeper understanding of E-Ink itself, stop by the company’s website for even more info. Enjoy!
