The video will be displayed on slim-line screens
around the size of a mobile phone display and will have rechargeable
batteries. The associated chip can hold up to 40 minutes of video, and uses technology similar to that used in singing greeting cards, playing
the movie when the page is turned. The first clips will preview CBS
shows and advertise Pepsi, but they will only be distributed in Los Angeles and New York.
Imagine the fun hacking possibilities."
