The E Ink persistency contest, your chance to win a new e-reader

E Ink displays can actually retain an image for years without power. Back in 2011 E Ink sent me a nice photo frame with an E Ink display showing a photo - and one year later and the image still hasn't changed at all. There's no battery or power source there. Now our sister site E-Ink-Info is running a cool contest - offering two e-readers to those who come up with the best application ideas for this feature.

Besides making some nice B&W photo frames - what cool things can be done with a display that can stay persistent for such long times without a power source? For example gadgets that only need to change the display once a day. Just hop over to E-Ink-Info and post a comment with your idea and e-mail address (or send us the e-mail address in private). We'll choose the two best ideas, and award them with new e-readers (either a Kindle paperwhite or a Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight). This content is open for everyone. E Ink, who were kind enough to give away the two e-readers, will ship them worldwide. We'll choose the new winners on December 11th.
