The ability to flip pages is lost on the typical electronic book.
But that’s about to change.
A team led by Lee Howan, from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, has reproduced the centuries-old experience of turning the page. As Howan states:
The New Case Against Hillary!
According to the mainstream media, we should all have voted for “crooked” Hillary.
But if she was the president, you would never have this chance to turn a small stake of $100 into a small fortune.
Sure, Trump is not perfect.
But even if you didn’t vote for him…
Once you see this video, you might like him a little more.
“Our version of the e-book has four functions.” First, it can flip the pages. Second, it can bookmark. Third, the number of pages turned over can be different according to the number of fingers [touching the touchpad]. Fourth, the number of pages turned over can also differ according to a number written by a user on touchpad.”
The Smart E-Book combines two technologies – one that responds to finger movements on the screen and another that recognizes pressure on the frame surrounding the screen.
Together they allow a user to turn pages as though the E-Book were a paperback, infusing an old-world experience into new-world technology. And with luck, says Howan, South Korea’s classrooms, too…
“The education ministry is planning to propagate e-books to elementary schools by 2015. I hope our e-book can be used in the area. And then internationally, we would like to see our technology to be commercialized by companies producing e-books or tablet PCs.”
Another added benefit? While it recreates the experience of flipping pages, it doesn’t recreate the experience of the paper-cut.
