I’ve always got my eyes peeled for unique watches for you guys, and this is definitely one of the cooler high-tech timepieces I’ve seen in a while.
Seiko Japan’s new SDGA001, SDGA002 and SDGA003 watches feature the world’s first active matrix electrophoretic display (EPD).
With ever-increasing pixel resolution, contrast ratios and refresh rates all reaching the point of diminishing returns in terms of improving image quality on video monitors, it was only a matter of time until someone decided to go after the number of colors stat so they could sound just that much better than the competition.
This new electronic paper display from Seiko Epson crams an astounding 1600 x 1200 resolution into a 6.7-inch diagonal screen. That’s nearly 2-million pixels in a device that’s about the size of a letter-sized sheet of paper folded in half.
Hitachi has started to crank out a new 2.9-inch LCD panel that can handle a whopping 800 x 480 pixels of resolution on its tiny screen. The new display has about five times the resolution of the typical QVGA (240 x 320) color displays found on mobile phones.
