The transparent layer sits over the top of the reading surface. Flex Lighting claims that the film is only 50 microns thick, making it practically invisible even when the LED is turned off. Considering that this addresses the only significant weakness of e-readers – being unusable in the dark – this technology is great news for e-readers indeed, and should help them make a stand against the multitasking tablets.
