California is often used as the testbed for new automotive technology in the US, and after a number of years in development a new digital number plate pilot program is now getting underway in the Golden State. 

Drivers in California will now be able to buy and fit these new plates that use the same E Ink screen technology as the Amazon Kindle e-reader and some wearable items, and also incorporate a wireless communication system. The revolutionary new plates were developed by a company called Reviver Auto and replace a traditional stamped plate. The system is available for both retail and commercial vehicles, although they don't come cheap.
