Philips unveils new dual monitor with an e-ink side-panel display

Remember when e-ink was going to save our eyeballs from strain? Well, it mostly stuck to e-readers and a few laptops. But Philips isn’t letting that dream die, as they’ve cooked up the Business Monitor Dual Screen Display. Don’t let the snooze-worthy name fool you – it’s a bizarrely intriguing combo of a 24-inch IPS monitor and a 13.3-inch black-and-white ePaper display in one unit. It sports a 13.3-inch vertical panel with a humble 1600×1200 resolution. The matte, 4-bit grayscale screen is perfect for tackling lengthy documents without frying your eyes, and like most Amazon Kindles, it shines in low light thanks to a front light. The standalone screen comes with DisplayPort, HDMI, and USB-C connections at a cool $800, which is par for the course in this niche market.
