Duo-Screened e-Book Reader Mimics The Look & Feel Of Paper Books
By Dorothy Tan, 23 Aug 2013
Even with eInk, many book lovers still find that e-books are incapable of replicating the experience of reading a book made of paper.
Industrial designer Fabrice Dubuy has created a concept for an alternative version of e-book readers and tablets like the Kindle and the iPad—featuring two eInk screens instead of one, the “TwistBook” mimics the structure of paper books by “splitting” open in the middle.
The two screens are connected by a flexible binding, much like the spine of a paperback—users can also customise their TwistbBooks by applying photographs or artworks directly onto the printable covers.
While this will not be able to reproduce the smell and texture of a paper book, having to open up the e-book reader the traditional way—instead of simply tapping on an icon on a touchscreen—may be a little step towards reclaiming the almost-lost romance of book reading.
Will you buy an e-book reader like this?
