Nav's Place: Nav's Home on the Interwebs

Videos on paper..

Yes, Videos on paper will be coming out sometime in September, this is kinda like the stuff seen in the Harry Potter movies with moving images on the pages instead of boring static ones. Will be pretty cool to see this kind of technology everywhere not just newspapers. Imagine video displays on your wallet which could communicate to the web and retrieve your bank balance…

Anyways .. here is a quote from the article.

The video-in-print ads will appear in select copies of the US show business title Entertainment Weekly.  The slim-line screens – around the size of a mobile phone display – also have rechargeable batteries.  The chip technology used to store the video – described as similar to that used in singing greeting cards – is activated when the page is turned. Each chip can hold up to 40 minutes of video.
