Electronic Paper is here...

Check it out.
and about Sony and the whole DRM thing, read here:

Personally, I think this stuff will hit big-time when it will be an input medium as well. Write a note and it comes out formatted text in the font most resembling your handwriting, draw a picture and throw it up as your site's favicon, take margin notes in the books you're reading with the capability to turn them on or off or share them with friends. The possibilities would open up with a tactile interface medium. I've always thought tablet pc's would be great if you could use your hands instead of a mouse or pen. Just use your fingers to 'stretch' a window, or tap (double-tap? right-tap?) on screen elements instead of clicking them. Because of the nature of the business I am employed in, I can envision a day when architects will have a table-top sized sheet of this stuff jacked in to their AutoCad workstation, upload final drawings or revisions to the builders on-site who can then project them on a wall or floor. I will essentially be out of a job, (paper and all that) but I hope to be living/doing something completely different by then.
