The terminus of contemporary Mencius’mother’s three moves can be an”electronic schoolbag”

  The most classic example of the impact of environmental change on educational success is the”Meng Mu moved three times”in China.
  When Mencius was a child,he lived by the cemetery and played funeral games with the children of his neighbors.Mencius’mother immediately moved with him to the market.When they moved to the market,Mencius learned to do business with the children in the neighborhood.When Mencius’mother knew about it,she once again took Mencius moved to the academy.This time,Mencius began to be orderly,polite,and fond of reading,and eventually became the”sub-saint”of China admired by later generations.
  The story of Mencius’mother moving three times tells us a profound truth:educational environment has a very profound influence on a person’s growth.With the rapid development of modern education information technology,the application of high quality and healthy electronic schoolbag teaching environment in school education has become more and more normal,and”electronic schoolbag”has really become the information assistant for children’s study and life.
  In the intelligent education environment of electronic schoolbag,the classroom is guided by information technology,the teaching quality and learning interaction efficiency are improved,and students’autonomous learning ability is improved.So what does a”digital e-paper bag”look like?
  As a product of the era of”paperless books”,the electronic schoolbag with an electronic ink screen is ultra-thin,can be written by hand,and can maintain a display even when power is cut off.The e-paper screen can restore the reading experience of paper books and support the original handwriting.Reflective technology allows children to read and study for a long time without strong light causing irritation to the eyes,which can protect eyesight.E-paper displays use very little power to change frames and are about 27 percent lighter than liquid-crystal displays of the same size.The unique features of eye protection,energy saving,light weight and paper sense enable students to study healthily anytime and anywhere.
  The electronic schoolbag consists of three parts:”learning terminal+resources+teaching system”,covering teaching activities before,during and after class.Students can open it anytime and anywhere to do homework,directly download and submit homework online,and teachers can break through the time and space limitations to review and tutoring remotely anytime and anywhere,truly realizing zero distance between home and school.Electronic schoolbag cannot realize entertainment application,can effectively control students’entertainment.No matter where they go,as long as they carry it,they can realize efficient learning.
  The core technology and product of DKE–e-paper display screen,is used in electronic schoolbag,e-paper notebook and other teaching auxiliary products,which strongly promotes the reform and development of intelligent education and learning.DKE’s e-paper is widely used,in addition to the field of smart education,it has many bright spots in many fields such as new retail,smart office,smart logistics,smart life and smart medical treatment.

Technology: Electrophoretic Paper Technology

 E-paper — the optical component of a film used in Electronic Paper Displays (EPD). Although futuristic-sounding, electronic ink is actually a straightforward fusion of chemistry, physics and electronics. It’s so much like paper, it utilizes the same pigments used in the printing industry today.
What is a Bistable Display?
        E Ink’s technology is commonly referred to as “bistable”. What does this mean? Bistable means that the image on an E Ink screen will be retained even when all power sources are removed. In practice, this means that the display is consuming power only when something is changing. For example, when reading on an eReader, power is only needed when turning to a new page but no power is consumed by the display while reading the page. This is most noticeable when an eReader goes into sleep mode yet there is still an image being displayed. By contrast, with a traditional LCD, the display is needs to be refreshed around 30X per second, regardless of the whether anything new is being displayed. Bistability significantly reduces the power consumption of displays using E Ink and is a key reason eReaders have such long battery life.
 Reflective Displays
        E Ink displays are also referred to as “reflective displays.” In an LCD, or “emissive display”, light from a backlight is projected through the display towards your eyes. In an E Ink display, no backlight is used; rather, ambient light from the environment is reflected from the surface of the display back to your eyes. As with any reflective surface, the more ambient light, the brighter the display looks. This attribute mimics traditional ink and paper, and users of E Ink displays have said that they do not have the same eye fatigue as with LCDs when reading for long periods of time. The backlight can also consume up to 40% of the power used in electronic product. Therefore, eliminating the need for a backlight significantly increases the battery life versus using a traditional LCD.
Two Pigment Ink System
        Electronic ink is made up of millions of tiny microcapsules, about the diameter of a human hair. Each microcapsule contains positively charged white particles and negatively charged black particles suspended in a clear fluid. When a positive or negative electric field is applied, corresponding particles move to the top of the microcapsule where they become visible to the viewer. This makes the surface appear white or black at that spot. 

Three Pigment Ink System
        Spectra is our 3-pigment ink offering, engineered specifically for Electronic Shelf Labels (ESL). It works similarly to dual pigment system, in that we apply a charge to our pigments, and to a top and bottom electrode to facilitate movement. However, Spectra is utilizing a microcup ink structure.

Spectra for ESL
        By using electronic shelf labels (ESL) with E Ink’s technology, retailers have the ability to change pricing strategies as needed in real time, allowing them to stay one step ahead of competitors while attracting consumers based on changing market conditions. Spectra allows retailers to elevate the impact of their ESLs, by adding color to logos and quickly directing consumers’ attention to important information, such as product sales and promotions.

Pervasive Displays Launch New DIY Kit w\ E-paper Screens

If you’ve been wanting to build your own wearable with an E-paper screen then I have some good news for you. A company in the United States and Pervasive Displays have just released a new development kit which combines 3 small E-ink screens with a controller board,
What with the decline of the ebook reader market over the past couple years, E-ink has been putting more and more effort into developing new markets for their screen tech. There are now at least a half-dozen   different kits for the DIY market which include an E-ink screen, and E-ink has also released encouraged new products in a wide variety of markets including shelf labels, smartphone cases, luggage tags, smart watches, and more.
         And now there’s a new one.
        The EPD Xplained Pro kit includes 1.54″, 2.13″, and 2.9″ E-ink screens from Pervasive Displays along with an extension board which is designed to work with the Atmel Studio IDE. This particular kit can’t do anything on its own, but from what I have read online and in the user manual I can tell that this kit is designed to work with other Atmel Xplained Pro development boards like the SAM4L Xplained Pro and the SAM D20 Xplained Pro.

       DKE are now providing monochromatic EPD as well as 3 color (Black, White and Red) EPD for clients. Besides providing a range of standard dot matrix EPDs, DKE also provides customization services, mostly on Segmented EPD.

About E-paper display (EPD)

     About E-paper disply EPD: 
        E-Paper displays or electronic paper displays are display technologies that mimic the appearance of ordinary ink on paper. Unlike conventional backlit flat panel displays that emit light, electronic paper displays reflect light like paper. This may make them more comfortable to read, and provide a wider viewing angle than most light-emitting displays. The contrast ratio in electronic displays available as of 2008 approaches newspaper, and newly developed displays are slightly better. An ideal e-paper display can be read in direct sunlight without the image appearing to fade. Also, electronic paper technologies hold static text and images indefinitely without electricity. Flexible electronic paper uses plastic substrates and plastic electronics for the display backplane. 
       E-paper display technology mode is commonly referred to as “bi-stable” mode. What does this mean? Bi-stable means that the image on an e-paper display will be retained even when all power sources are removed. In practice, this means that the display consumes power only when refreshing. For example, when reading on an e-reader, there is no power consumption for the image to display. Power is only needed when turning from this page to a new page. This is most noticeable that when an e-reader goes into sleep mode yet there is still an image being displayed. By contrast, for a traditional LCD, the display is needed to be refreshing around 30X per second regardless of the whether anything new is being displayed. Bi-stability significantly reduces the power consumption of e-paper display and it is the key reason why e-readers have such long battery life. 
       E-paper displays are also referred to as “reflective displays.” In an LCD or “emissive display”, light from a backlight is projected through the display towards your eyes. For an E-paper display, no backlight is needed; rather, ambient light from the environment is reflected from the surface of the display to your eyes. For any reflective surface, the more ambient light, the brighter the display looks. This attribute mimics traditional ink and paper, and users of e-paper displays may be more comfortable when reading for long time. The backlight can also consume up to 40% of the power used in electronic product. Therefore, eliminating the need for a backlight significantly increases the battery life and increasing the experiencing of reading. 
       Applications of e-paper displays include electronic pricing labels (ESL) in retail shops, digital signage, timetables at bus stations, electronic billboards, mobile phone displays, electronic watch, electronic bracelet, electronic covers, electronic wallpaper and e-readers able to display digital versions of books, e-paper magazines and etc.
