Say e-ink and you think e-readers, but the electronic paper is starting to pop up in smartwatches and phone cases, as we saw at Computex in Taiwan.
TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Here at Computex, e-ink isn't just for e-readers.
New for this year, Epson's Smart Canvas watch gets a little artistic with its design.
Chinese manufacturer Tomoon has a variety of smartwatches, include the e-ink T-Fire which has a slightly curved screen.
Not surprisingly, the E Ink company stand had a variety of innovative products using e-ink technology. This Sonostar smartwatch had fitness tracking capabilities, as well as call alert and reject, message alerts, and more.
Seiko's e-ink watch offering was a little more functional, design-wise than some on display.
True to its name, the Rorschach from Kisai uses an inkblot-style design to tell the time on its e-ink display.
There were of course plenty of e-readers on the E Ink stand, including the strangely named Boox i63ML Newton from Onyx.
Out of the all the readers, the Tolino had the most endearing screensaver.
The E-Card from Alcatel is an e-reader so small you can have it with you at all times.

The 6-inch Spectra e-reader adds a dash of colour into the usually monochrome world of e-ink.
Sony's Digital Paper is a 13.3-inch tablet that uses e-ink technology combined with a stylus to create an "etch-a-sketch on steroids". At $1,100 (£650, AU$1,175), the price is also on steroids.
Away from the E Ink stand, Singapore-based Oaxis has a few e-ink phone cases. This is a wallet style flip case with the e-ink screen front-facing when closed.
Also from Oaxis, this is a sports version of the InkCase, displaying fitness data.
