For retailers wanting to add E Ink point of sale (POS) advertising displays throughout their stores, a new model has the extra benefit of being able to recharge itself from regular indoor lighting.
The POS display from Neoluxiim has a thin display that measures 7.5 mm in depth, with a maximum display of 26 X 12 cm. The battery in the device allows it to function for up to 18 months. It runs off rays from standard indoor lighting.
The device uses E Ink, the same technology that powers the Amazon Kindle book reader. E Ink uses less power than traditional displays because it requires less energy to maintain an image. See a description of the technology here.
