Xiaomi has just presented a new, rather interesting product called Ink Case Smart Electronic Paper and that's exactly what the name suggests, a smart spreadsheet!
The new Xiaomi gadget uses E-Ink technology without actually emitting any light. In contrast, electronic ink works through electric fields that can produce black and white as a fill. This means that when in standby mode, no update takes place, the ink remains in the same position actually eliminating the flickering problem that fatigues the eyes considerably. Furthermore, this technology also allows you to save a lot of energy and therefore have more autonomy.
