Esquire E Ink Cover
Posted by Scott
100,000 copies of Esquire’s October 75th anniversary issue will sport the "World’s First E Ink Cover". The video is pretty amazing; I’ve seen Kindles and other E Ink-equipped gadgetry before, but this is a pretty stunning application of the technology. Whether it is relevant and/or functional as a concept remains to be seen. There are already some people raising interesting questions as to this potential trend’s impact. Whatever the case may be, that cover is pretty damned cool looking.

Wow. a real printed magazine with a real-life-internet-blinking GIF-File on it.
Awesome Technology, but lets hope Magazine Design doesn’t takes a bad turn in the future through that. I can vividly imagine blinking ads and other stupid stuff done with that.

I just bought me a copy…just to have the “World’s First E-Ink Cover” …and of course they sold an E-Ink ad to Ford on the inside of the cover…I might buy another copy just to take it apart and see how they did it.
It’s disappointingly not quite as exciting when you have the real thing, but what is exciting is the thought of what implications the technology may have 10 yrs down the road. I saw one funny comment “Now picture this applied to porn” hahaha.
