Do you know what e-ink is? It is the technology that makes your Kindle very easy on the eyes when reading it and is also able to use a very low amount of energy which gives the battery a super long life. It is awesome to know that you can charge the Kindle and have it for the entire week without recharging it again. Gadgets 4 Guys has begun to notice that people are using this technology for more than just e-readers and the popSLATE iPhone case is one of the best instances of e-ink technology being used.
popSLATE is a simple looking iPhone 5 case at first glance until you realize it utilizes the e-ink technology to display really amazing pictures and photos on the back of the case. We are all ‘Mericans and we absolutely love to show our individuality with accessories, cars, and clothes which is why we think that popSLATE could become a big deal. You are also able to use the popSLATE technology to share the different pictures and images you have with friends and family which is where the uniqueness of the gadget comes into play. We have all walked by our Kindle and done a double take because the advertisement display was so captivating. That is the same idea behind the popSLATE cover. The idea of trying to show off your images and pictures in the physical world and not just on Facebook and Instagram / the virtual world. We are hoping that by actually having to carry your pictures around for display to the entire physical world might get you to stop taking pictures of your “amazing spaghetti and meatballs” because nobody cares and nobody definitely wants to waste the time viewing it.
popSLATE looks pretty amazing and we like the ability it might have to morph and change. We know that the flexibility of e-ink is a bit questionable but it would be awesome to see some games come out for it too. Nothing to major but maybe bringing back “Snake” from the old Nokia phones would be appreciated. Click here for image source and where to buy.
