E-Book lovers, this article is for you!
You know how much I love my eReaders, and how technology is something that makes my life easier and brighter every day, right? Then you must imagine how I loved to find this video showing how
my our reading experience might change in the future.. Because with this, the eReading experience will never be the same 🙂
Of course this is only a prototype, but one can always hope, and I love how they’ve made the new application ‘fake’ the way books behave in our hands (in real life).
Not sure if others would be as delighted by it as I am, but I would love to have that on my iPad right now! I’m in love with it!
Happy (e)reading and have a great day!
This is some really cool technology. Is it for the new iPad? While I love eReaders as much as I like physical books I like simple eReaders best. I don’t want a back light (it hurts my eyes), I don’t need text to speech (the voice is too robotic for my taste), I don’t need a built in MP3 player (because it kills the battery faster and I already have an iTouch). I just want to read. I would love to be able to flip pages like that thought!
It was a bit late here when I wrote the article and I was so excited by the video itself that I forgot to mention some important facts. This is the description of the video from youtube: “KAIST Institute of Information Technology Convergence – Patented Smart E-Book Interface Prototype implemented with Apple Private API”.
This is just a prototype created by the Institute (not an Apple product), but I am sure that someday we will all have that on our gadgets.
As for the e-readers, I prefer as well to read on my kindle (same reasons as you – it is easier on the eyes and I can focus on reading only) but I enjoy reading on iPad too from time to time.
The latest kindle product (the eReader, not the tablet) has the same E-Ink screen but with touch-screen, and I know they are working on developing color E-Ink displays as well, so I guess that in the future we can have a great touch-interface that doesn’t hurt our eyes. And I can’t wait for that to happen 🙂
