I make a point of asking About small displays whenever I see displays on display. I haven't seen anything appropriate yet, but I was kind of assuming that one of these display manufacturers in China it would make whatever they were asked to do. I think that e-ink displays can be made almost any size but there are no tiny standard products. You have to pay significant NRE for non-standard sizes. The power supply is only 15V I think. E-ink is compelling if it could be made small enough. Think how cool that would be to have an e-ink display in a ring.

I thought that was the case, but I thought I'd ask in case you recalled anything. I had heard a rumor that e-ink displays could be cut down, but I don't see how that is possible, and leave the signal matrix in place.
Obviously there are displays (FitBit) that are pretty small, but I'm guessing they must be custom. I'm looking for a flexible display that can be wrapped entirely around the outside of a ring.
Perhaps way off, but it seems like it might be useful.
