E-Ink....and video?

A Belgian newspaper is testing out a portable, lightweight newspaper that uses "electronic ink" technology. This kinda thing could allow the newspaper to update itself with the latest news - while it's in your hands.

This technology was developed by some forward-thinking cats from MIT's Media Lab. They started a company called E Ink. I'm so intrigued by this, I hope other newspapers are looking into it. Imagine how nice it would be to have interactive features built right into the newspaper -- say, when you touch the photo from last night's Bruin's game, it starts moving and you could watch a video clip of the game.
