Magazines of tomorrow, today.

This is really cool! Esquire magazine has come up with a cover using E-Ink (Electronic Ink) that blinks.

Apparently they are only producing 100,000 of these.

Looking at this makes me wonder how far away are we from the days when we have moving pictures in newsprint. Think about it. All those fantasy and Sci-Fi movies may not be far off. The newspapers from Harry Potter and the wanted posters from Serenity/Firefly.

Now what I really want to know is, how much is this going to cost?

Great - blinking ascii on magazine covers, now all we need is about a bazillion animated gifs and magazines will be brought into the age of awesomeness that was the geocities home page! Wooo we all now how much everybody loved that stuff!
