CES 2013: 0.8mm thick E Ink wristwatch


E Ink and watchmaker Central Standard Timing spiced up CES 2013 with a rather interesting prototype that went live on Kickstarter as well, a 0.8mm thick (or rather thin) bracelet style wristwatch.

We must say that the CST-01, as CST decided to name it, does look pretty impressive as the entire thing is made by laminating thin, flexible components into a 0.5mm pocket etched in a of flexible stainless steel, just 0.8mm thin. The entire watch lacks any physical buttons or knobs as the entire setting is done on the included base/charging station.

It is powered by Infinite Power Solutions' 4V 0.7mAh Thinergy "Micro-Energy Cell" solid-state battery that can be recharged 10,000 times and lasts over 15 years. It charges up in 10 minutes and expected lifetime between charges is around a month.

CET also launched a campaign on the Kickstarter asking for US $200,000 and already scored almost half of it. Currently, US $99 pledges are already gone, but you can still score one in white or black color for US $129.

It is definitely one of the more interesting Kickstarter projects to show up in recent weeks. You can check it out here.
