I'm not so sure about wallpaper in the classical sense. Unless these screens can be developed in a manner that reflects light, they should still
need some sort of backlighting. I wonder just how thin they can make fiberoptic luminescent sheeting.
Yeah E-Ink is pretty cool. All the consumers reviews I've read about it say it currently sucks. It'll get better eventually though. Little like
12 or 16bit color displays should be on the market soon I think. Still a long ways off from being anything revolutionary.
Very neat stuff. Holodeck anyone? With technology that advances as fast as it has, I can imagine what this will be in a few years. What great
entertainment it would be to program in areas around the world...or just make the room look bigger and watch guests walk into the wall.

That's a very interesting thought.
Virtual communities are huge business, an industry currently worth billions. Virtual real estate in virtual worlds is selling for a premium, it would
be easy for this technology to support itself economically.
A perfect application would be to project life size second life. This would really merge the line between virtual and real life.
I for one have no time what so ever to be able to enjoy online applications of MMORPG and virtual worlds such as second life / world of warcraft
The key for this technology to be successful will be in content provision.
There will of course be corporate providers of content but there will be an open market of trading. What I can see is virtual objects appearing for
auction on EBay.
Of course if you are proficient enough to program your own objects then you could be a self employed virtual fabricator.
The possibilities for creating a virtual shop front and operate as a traditional shop with people coming and going all projected straight onto the
wall of your living area.
What was earlier your living area outside of working hours has now turned into your working environments.
The possibilities for this technology as I said earlier are literally endless.
