Bigme have recently launched a Kickstarter crowd funding campaign for a colour e-ink monitor and integrated Windows PC, dubbed the BC251 series.
This can be backed as either the standalone monitor or the PC/Monitor combo.
My opinion on crowd-funding
Whilst I have nothing against crowd-funding campaigns, because they provide manufacturers with the much-needed capital they need to try out new concepts, I do not back them myself.
You only have to look at previous e-ink device crowd-funding campaigns (Bigme Galy, Topjoy Butterfly, Reinkstone R1) to see that they often lead to disappointment. What you tend to get is a product that is more like a proof-of-concept or prototype, and there is no guarantee that you will actually receive anything for your money.
Therefore, I believe that crowdfunding is only for people that have cash to spare and really believe in the project and company they are backing.
