This is a very cool tool but will it gain traction for educational use? Have a closer look: E Ink and Avalue just announced a new customizable digital paper tablet for the education market. The display can sync with existing services by optimizing Android apps to be used on the ePaper display, or by utilizing Digital Paper Control Server Software(DCSS).
The application can then sync with service applications running on PC/Mac, tablet, or smartphone devices. These capabilities make the tablet particularly useful across segments like STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) disciplines, higher education, corporate training, and publishing. Like all technology that uses E Ink technology, the digital paper tablet is extremely energy-efficient, has paper-like readability, and is highly visible at all times of the day.
The Digital Paper tablet offers a paper-like experience for reading, annotating and note taking on letter size documents. The glare free, easy-on-the-eyes display is suited for longer term immersive reading, even in direct sunlight. A non-slip surface delivers the “feel” of pen on paper when highlighting, annotating, or erasing on documents.
With a thin, lightweight but durable design, and long battery life, this cool tool can improve existing document workflows to deliver a better, more efficient user experience. The functionality and user interface can be customized to meet the specific needs of applications across many educational market segments. Learn more.
