The Electronic Paper Computer You Didn’t Know You Needed | Digital Trends Spanish

Boston startup Modos is working on a laptop with an e-paper screen, and it’s banking on the popularity of electronic paper devices and e-readers to make it a success. The company claims that the Paper Modes laptop will offer lower prices, less eyestrain and a more realistic work environment than what is available now.

Modos is an open hardware and open software startup dedicated to reimagining computing. The team behind the company imagines a more calm and humane technology, according to a company blog post.

The paper laptop will not have an OLED or LCD panel and will instead use a black and white screen as a kindle e-reader. While this may turn off gamers and graphic designers, Paper Laptop is not aimed at them.

Most working people use their laptops to read emails and PDFs or write reports. The team behind Modos believes that an electronic paper display is preferable for them.

“Our devices will be designed to complement your workflow and help you get into a flow state or mode,” said the Modes team at a blog post on the company website.

Electronic paper displays replicate the feel of writing on paper using a specialized stylus. they do charging electronically screen surface to create tactile resistance, which recreates the look of ink on paper. They have extremely low power consumption, so the battery can last for hundreds of hours of use on a single charge.

Compared to normal LED screens, electronic paper screens are also easy to see. In a world dominated by glossy electronic screens, the paper laptop offers a softer approach by eliminating eye strain. The Paper Laptop Modes will allow the user to physically interact with the screen.

The company has yet to release its paper laptop to the public. Modos said it has built several working prototypes and will start production once there are 50,000 people interested in buying a device.
