Smaller graphical e-ink displays

Post by capinredbeard » Wed Dec 05, 2012 6:50 pm

I am looking for small(er) e-ink graphical e-ink displays. When I say smaller, I mean smaller than the e-ink displays you could remove from an e-reader (~ 2-3 inches).
I have done a little googling, and it looks like these are being used in watches (e.g. http://www.phosphorwatches.com) and electronic price tags (http://www.zbdsolutions.com/solutions/epop300.html). Some of the price tags appear to be custom designed segmented displays, but others look like they are fully graphical. ZBD Solutions sells retail solutions that update wirelessly over RF.
It would be GREAT if Sparkfun could source the bare display with controller. A kit with the transmitter and a small number of complete tags would be cool too, but I doubt ZBD would go for that.
