I ran across this and thought I'd send it out. It will
be coming out soon
and will be the new way to read a book. You won't have
to be connected, no
batteries, nothing to crash, can sit in your arm chair
and read, make notes
with the PENCILS, and with the flick of a finger go to
the next chapter,
whatever. It is amazing! Your brain and eye will be
the readers. See more

Subject: FW: Major Technology Breakthrough
Introducing the new Bio-Optic Organized Knowledge
device, trade named: BOOK
BOOK is a revolutionary breakthrough in technology: no
wires, no electric circuits, no batteries, nothing to
connected or switched on. It's so easy to use, even a
child can operate it.

Compact and portable, it can be used anywhere -- even
sitting in an armchair by the fire -- yet it is
enough to hold as much information as a CD-ROM disc.
Here's how it works:

BOOK is constructed of sequentially numbered sheets of
paper (recyclable),
each capable of holding thousands of bits of
information. The pages are
locked together with a custom-fit device called a
binder, which keeps the
sheets in their correct sequence.

Opaque Paper Technology (OPT) allows manufacturers to
use both sides of the
sheet, doubling the information density and cutting
costs. Experts are
divided on the prospects for further increases in
information density; for
now, BOOKs with more information simply use more

Each sheet is scanned optically, registering
directly into your brain. A flick of the finger takes
you to
the next sheet. BOOK may be taken up at any time and
used merely by opening

Unlike other display devices, BOOK never crashes or
requires rebooting, and
it can even be dropped on the floor or stepped on
without damage. However,
it can become unusable if immersed in water for a
significant period of
time. The "browse" feature allows you to move
instantly to any sheet and
move forward or backward as you wish. Many come with
an "index" feature,
which pinpoints the exact location of selected
information for instant

An optional "BOOKmark" accessory allows you to open
BOOK to the exact place
you left it in a previous session -- even if the BOOK
has been closed.
BOOKmarks fit universal design standards; thus, a
single BOOKmark can be
used in BOOKs by various manufacturers. Conversely,
numerous BOOKmarkers can
be used in a single BOOK if the user wants to store
numerous views at once.
The number is limited only by the number of pages in
the BOOK.

You can also make personal notes next to BOOK text
entries with an optional
programming tool, the Portable Erasable Nib Cryptic
Language Stylus (PENCILS).

Portable, durable, and affordable, BOOK is being
hailed as a precursor of a
new entertainment wave. Also, BOOK's appeal seems so
certain that thousands
of content creators have committed to the platform and
investors are
reportedly flocking. Look for a flood of new titles
