Sony might create watch out of e-paper

The mighty Japanese tech company Sony has shared its plans for 2015 and beyond. Forced by costs that are getting out of control the company plans to cut down its poorly performing TV and smartphone models and increase profits in the near future. At the same time Sony plans to present a few new and innovative products in order to attract more consumer attention.

The first product might already be here – Sony reportedly plans to create and introduce a watch that is made of e-paper. The upcoming product is expected to prioritize style over functionality and will not follow the likes of Apple iWatch and Samsung Gear S. The e-paper technology behind the new watch is unclear and that’s why there’s a lot of speculation online as of now. Another new Sony project will be a building block system that allows professionals and amateurs to build prototype electronics products on their own. The system called MESH will include sensors, LEDs and buttons and will be controlled via a tablet app for easier accessibility and more intuitive control.

We will likely see both new projects in 2015 or maybe 2016. Sony has, so far, said nothing on possible presentation or even release dates.
