New Boogie Board LCD eWriters Draw Big Crowds at CES

>PRWEB.COM Newswire

Kent, Ohio (PRWEB) January 25, 2013

Improv Electronics announced today that its second appearance at the renowned International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada earlier this month was an enormous success. Prototypes for two new Boogie Board LCD eWriter models, the Boogie Board Sync 9.7 LCD eWriter and Boogie Board Jot 4.5 LCD eWriter, drew large crowds throughout the four day event.

Both new Boogie Board eWriter models will be available in stores for the 2013 Holidays season.

In addition to the two new models, the Boogie Board booth featured the company’s existing line of Boogie Board LCD eWriters, the tree-friendly, electronic alternatives to paper and pens that utilize revolutionary Reflex® No Power LCDs as their writing surface. Reflex LCDs are manufactured by Kent Displays. The booth also included several examples of OEM applications for Reflex eWriter LCDs and a large format 37” Boogie Board LCD eWriter proof of concept.

“Boogie Board LCD eWriters created quite a buzz at CES, and it was extremely exciting to hear such positive feedback from retailers, media members and industry analysts as they experienced the newest paperless writing innovations we developed at Improv Electronics,” said Kent Displays/Improv Electronics CEO Dr. Albert Green. “It’s obvious the wireless capabilities of the Boogie Board Sync 9.7 LCD eWriter and portability of the Boogie Board Jot 4.5 LCD eWriter are going to take the paperless revolution to an entirely new level in 2013.”
