Sony Post-it LCD display
In 1974, Arthur Fry applied a discarded adhesive, concocted by his work colleague, to pieces of paper to make sticky bookmarks for his hymnbook. The rest is history. Post-it notes are now everywhere. I have a soft spot for that style of good old-fashioned traditional inventing. That's why I had to look twice at this new monitor from Sony. They've taken their normal LCD range and added a plastic panel along the bottom, simply for sticking Post-its to. A great traditional design solution! If that's not enough, Sony has added a little groove for pens and pencils to sit in wait for those ever-decreasing analogue moments of the day.
No price for the E-series monitor has been released yet, but the display will come in both 17" and 19" sizes, and will be available from 19th June.
