Showing the future for a paperless office
July 12, 2012
Plastic Logic was thrilled to have been selected to be part of BBC Click’s experiment to live without paper. As BBC Click said, “Talk of a paperless office has been around for well over 40 years” but “the office […] still shows no sign of giving up its fight to stay in print.”
BBC Click visited Plastic Logic’s R&D centre in Cambridge to see how our unique plastic electronics technology has the potential to help make their vision of a paperless office a reality. Visiting our lab included getting kitted up for a behind-the-scenes tour of our cleanroom and BBC Click saw how our technology is manufactured. With well over a million plastic transistors, BBC Click saw how our displays can show high-resolution text, images and even video animation, while still remaining flexible and robust. The BBC Click team experienced how our flexible plastic displays could be a perfect partner product for people in the office and on the move, including sending content wirelessly from their smartphone to a plastic e-paper accessory display, making it much easier to read files.
Plastic Logic CEO, Indro Mukerjee, was also featured on BBC Click talking about how Plastic Logic has developed our unique technology from research project to fully industrialised state and some of the challenges we’ve overcome along the way. Indro gave a glimpse into the future, talking about the potential that one day people could wear, sit on, or use furniture that is embedded with Plastic Logic’s technology. BBC Click were so impressed with Plastic Logic’s technology that presenter Spencer Kelly said it represents a definite “step closer to a low power, paperless future.”
