We are a startup in the cosmetics - skin care market. We are about to launch a new high-end facial cream and we would like to incorporate either an "E Ink segmented display or a memory LCD display into the top of our new product's jar.
here's the technology I am referring to:
The display function will be to show and hold a new phrase each time the jar is opened. The memory will have to be able to host a total of 1000 phrases, no other function is required neither controls nor effects.
The main reasons why we are looking at these specific display solutions are their low energy consumption and their paper-like effect with no back-light which will allow to create a seamless effect with the product's jar itself.
The factors which will determine the use of the E Ink technology over the memory LCD and vice versa are:
- cost of prototyping and final estimated cost x unit for a 5000 units manufacturing round - quality and smoothness of the displayed text - final dimensions of the device (for incorporating purposes) - how long will it function before having to change the batteries
here's some recently launched products that employed this technology which are very close to the final display effects we like to achieve, especially in terms of text quality and overall device dimensions.
Due to the nature of our business we don't have an electrical engineer in our organic and we don't know which is the best way to go about creating a rapid prototype(s) to evaluate the technology and its incorporation feasibility with the final product from a design standpoint.
We are looking for someone to create a functioning prototype(s) of the display for us and eventually at a second stage to interface with our designer to incorporate the device into a 3D model of the jar.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
