Is it possible to use e-ink on Pc monitor
  

Ebook readers like kindle are equipped with e-ink display. I had seen some videos of this new technology which showed up a powerful screen with easy reading. I like the durability. Are there any monitors which comes with e-ink display. If yes what is the price and what is the model. From where can I buy that. Will that give the same output what we get on hd monitors.

E-ink display is meant for ebook readers. There is no such monitor which comes with e-ink support. You can wait for future, where there might be some similar products. E-ink is still under developing mode. They are being tested on ebook readers, and other gadgets. But talking about a pc monitor there is a great difference. A pc monitor has pixels to give you high quality video output. You can find that on your own by playing videos and games. Comparison to that e-ink is entirely different. It is usually meant for reading purpose only. While E-ink has only black and white particles only. There are millions of tiny micro-capsules on this screen. This micro-capsules has positive while particles and negative black one which appears on the screen as the electric current flows. This is entirely different in comparison to a monitor screen. I hope that in future you can see certain micro-capsules which are equipped with millions of colors and are capable of providing high quality of video output. There is time for that. Rightnow it is also no worth of getting a e-ink monitor. They have traditional black and white output that you can normally see on calculator screen.

There are no e-ink monitors. E-ink is just a plan digital paper equipped with small black and white particles. They are robust and durable and work under all circumstances. But compared to that our pc monitor technology is entirely different.

Yes it is right. See you can find easily a 3D monitor. Now can you expect anything from e-ink. Check the devices which usually come equipped with this technology. They are only meant for transitional purpose. In future you might get a better replacement of this. Also there is no option by which you can use the existing e-ink display as a monitor. They are on devices like ebook reader which does not support dual monitor. It is recommended that you might find a far more better alternative. If we talk about flexible display then search for Flexible OLED displays. OLED is upcoming display technology which helps you get clear vibrant output on a very think monitor. This can be bended as you want. It is designed in such a way that it does not breaks. It is durable and easy to use with any devices. But still a final model of the same is being under development. If you are looking for a good quality folding display then try to search for thin OLED monitors. They are awesome and provides superb quality output.

OLED needs time to come in market. They are too costly. You cannot just go for a widecreen OLED display. It is costly and if broken is more costly to fix. E-ink is a dual solution, but it is not actually meant for pc usage.

Talking about durability then there are rare products. Monitors need to place in special places where they are safer from any kind of shock. Because of they fell they are broken completely. Today some of the smartphone are equipped with Gorilla glass. This is one of the most power screen glass available today. I hope in coming future some company might come up with a idea of using them on pc monitors. Or if we talk about flexibility then it is recommended that you must go for a portable projector. There are some small models that you can easily carry and comes with vga port. Comparison to portable mini projectors is more better. They are small handy projectors that you can carry anywhere you want. Portronics is a company which provides you small project. You can simply put that in your pocket or fix it on small stand to get the screen.
