eInk Blink Name Badge

e_ink_name_badgeNeolux have created a new name badge for conferences that uses eInk technology that makes it possible to change the badge, or make the text blink on it. It’s the same technology that is found in eBook readers and only requires power when the image is changed on the device.

The idea isn’t hugely beneficial from what I can see, but as it uses eInk crammed on to a small surface that also includes the chip to control it and a power source then it makes it quite a cool device. I’m not 100% sure if it’s practical and if the price is cheap enough to make it worth it.

The cool thing about it is that it actually does work and they have managed to cram everything needed in to the small device. As of now there are no details of when this will be available, or if it will become available. Check out the video below to see it in action.
