Welcome to RePaper

ePaper is a display technology that mimics the appearance of ink on paper. Unlike conventional displays, ePaper reflects light – just like ordinary paper – and is capable of holding text and images indefinitely, even without electricity.

We recognize ePaper is a new technology and we’re asking your help in making it better known. Up till now, all industry players have kept the core technologies closed. We want to change this. If the history of the Internet has proven anything, it is that open technologies lead to unbounded innovation and unprecedented value added to the entire economy.

Specifically we:

  1. released sample programs under Apache 2.0
  2. published necessary documentation (including our waveform) under CC-BY-SA
  3. built inexpensive starter kits based on popular open platforms (Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Arduino, LaunchPad)

By permissively licensing our intellectual property, we are ensuring a safe, open foundation for developers and companies to build upon. We want to make sure ePaper can go everywhere.

We need your help in publicizing this. We want everyone to know that ePaper – this readable, rugged, ultra-low power consumption technology – is now open for development. We want you to use this information we make available. And do let us know how it works for you.

Welcome to repaper.org: Our commitment to make sure that ePaper is easy to use.
