October Release of Esquire Features E-Ink Cover

A while ago, we wrote about how magazine covers would eventually go high-tech, and specifically, how Esquire would soon revolutionize the world of offline publications by featuring an animated E-Ink cover on one of their upcoming issue. Well folks, a video showing the magazine’s cover has just been released, and I must say, I’m quite disappointed by the result. Ok, I know that this is the first e-cover ever, but still, I was expecting something a little flashier. Video after the jump.

  3. I got 8 of these, and I can tell you now that the hacking community is going to be able to do absolutely dick. There's are no pixels. It's only individually 'lit' panels. The best you could do is alter the order and combination in which they're lit.
