"I was involved in a cloning project. .. to send me into outer space along with a lot of other people. Not the whole me - just a hair from my head, while I still had some. I would thus pop up in another galaxy in the distant future."
- Arthur C. Clarke

E-paper Newspaper  
  A paper-thin, flexible LCD-style display that is large enough to display a full newspaper page.  

At this point in the film, John Anderton (Tom Cruise) is trying to escape from his fellow officers. He boards mass transportation, hoping to lose himself in the crowd. As he enters the train, he is scanned and identified.

Within moments, his position is reported at Precrime headquarters.

"He's been idented on the Metro... His train makes two stops at Twentieth and Thirty-third."

"Send units to each location."

From Minority Report (Movie), by Steven Spielberg.
Published by Dreamworks in 2002

As we watch, the headlines on the USA TODAY newspaper change from "Molecular nano-technology?" and "Medical nanodevice triumphs!" to "Breaking News! Precrime Hunts its Own!"


(Paper-thin E-Paper Newspaper changes content)

This was presaged in Neal Stephenson's mediatron from his 1995 novel The Diamond Age.
