Kyobo Mirasol Color e-Reader

At first glance, the Kyobo looks like any one of the million tablets on the market – until you realize that’s no LCD screen on it. The Kyobo features Mirasol, the first ever color e-ink screen to see the light of production. E-ink screens are much less strenuous on the eyes when reading when compared to those of the LCD variety, since LCDs are always backlight – hence the sensation of staring straight into a light bulb after hours on a computer.

It’s only available in South Korea at the moment, but we predict it won’t be long before we’re reading Marvel comics in full color on the metro. Click here to access Mirasol’s site. Our best guess as to how to get one now: scour ebay frequently – 310$.
