Enabling Trillions of ARM processors to be made cheaply to be embedded everywhere as envisioned by ARM owner Masayoshi Son, PlasticARM is an implementation of an ARM Cortex-M0 based 32-bit microprocessor SoC in plastic. Using PragmatIC’s technology, the flexible integrated circuit (FlexIC) is implemented in thin film metal oxides on a polymer substrate, with a total thickness of less than 10um. The latest version uses a 1um cell library, delivering a 10x improvement in footprint over the last 2 years, and significantly advancing the state-of-the-art in printed logic. PlasticARM demonstrates the potential for PragmatIC’s ultra-thin and ultra-low-cost plastic electronics to extend from smart packaging into areas such as wearables and security.

This is the SMT Line and testing process for the Colorii PocketHub, with 3 times full function testing for every USB Type-C hub after SMT and DIP. The 1st test is 100% current testing to check out if there is any shortcut on the PCBA, they set 5V on the current equipment and connect the PCBA by Type C port, if the current is above 0.02A, that means the PCBA have circurt problem, then they send it back to production, the 2nd test is 100% full function test of each port, HDMI, SD card, micro-SD card, 2xUSB 3.0A, specially for the USB Type-C fast charge! They test every unit on a Macbook. The 3rd test is after assembly with case, they do the same test of PCBA again (100% for every pieces, full function), to confirm every pieces work perfectly before shipping to the customer. You can also watch my video filmed at the Hong Kong fair featuring the new 10-in-1 Colorii USB Type-C Hub and my Tooling factory tour video.
This is the Colorii PocketHub Tooling factory in Shenzhen China where they make the casings and assembly of the Colorii PocketHub featuring 6-in-1 USB Type-C hub that is great for my Samsung Chromebook Plus, for Apple Macbook, other laptops with USB Type-C ports and for Smartphones also. You can also watch my video filmed at the Hong Kong fair featuring the new 10-in-1 Colorii USB Type-C Hub and my video filmed at the Colorii SMT Line.
Colorii shows its new 10-in-1 USB Type-C hub that comes with a foldable cable, 4x USB 3.0A ports, SD card slot, micro SD card slot, Gigabit Ethernet, perfect for me to use with my Samsung Chromebook Plus, it also supports 1080p dual display when using HDM and VGA at the same time. You can see my videos filmed at Colorii Tooling factory and SMT line.
Onyx unveils the world's first 13.3" Flexible high-resolution E Ink Carta device, for the first time shown to the public, with an amazing 2200x1650 resolution, fast handwriting for annotations and notes, beautiful rendering of A4 documents, pdf, epub and any other formats compatible with e-readers on Android. This is just one of the whole range of E Ink Carta devices shown by Onyx, they also have 6" devices, 6.8", 9.7" and the 10.3" device and the 9.7" ONYX Typewriter that I also filmed in this other Onyx video, ONYX also shows that it will be possible to mirror or extend a laptop display (or any other HDMI source) onto an upcoming 13.3" ONYX device and also ONYX has an amazing 9.7" ultra-light device with capacitive buttons in the works featured at the end of this video.
Onyx Typewriter has up to 25 days battery life in use (up to 50+ days battery life in standby according to Onyx), it is the world's first E Ink Laptop. The screen can be perfect to type texts outdoors, during the day in the sunlight, in the park, on your boat, on your balcony, on the beach, to get some natural sunlight while doing work! Of course the E Ink Laptop cannot replace your existing laptop, this is why a smart UI is going to be required. Onyx Typewriter runs Android so a smart app/instance could potentially make this great.
Onyx 10.3" BOOX Buddy from Onyx (at 7min27sec in this video) is one of the most amazing E Ink devices that I have even seen, amazingly light, thin, the E Ink display is flexible! Flush with the bezels, has a digitizer annotations support and capacitive touch, extremely beautiful and check how quick the stylus input is, it feels nearly like writing with a pen on paper!
These new awesome Onyx devices are two of the coolest new devices in the world. Here are just two, but there is more (check my other Onyx video featuring Onyx BOOX Max Carta 13.3" 2200x1650 Flexible E Ink device here) could enter mass production and be released in the months to come, when they can be perfected for release. Hopefully the price for these will be affordable, that might depend on the popularity and demand for these special E Ink displays, as the highest cost of these devices is the E Ink display and E Ink prices their displays cheaply only if the volumes are going to be big enough.
