We all like reading on a Kindle because of its E Ink screen. We can read for hours without feeling like our eyes are burning off from a harsh backlight. Chinese company Dasung wants to bring that same experience to computer monitors. The company showed off its Paperlike E Ink monitor at CES this year and just put the 13.3" monitor on Indiegogo this week. It's already more than doubled its $10,000 crowdfunding goal.

The monitor doesn't require a power connection to work and instead mirrors or extends a PC's display through a micro USB. E Ink can be slow to load, so users can choose how images are displayed by either opting for more details at slower speeds or fast speeds and less detailed images. I'm so ready to never look at anything in color again. Paperlike starts at $799 on Indiegogo.
