Bibliofile ebook reader concept design revealed  0

from Yanko Design

The interaction that was developed for the final design has a margin that can be flipped up to go to the next page or flipped down to go to the previous page. The flipper’s taper allows it to be read comfortably on a flat surface. Alternative material combination, including leather and cast cork bases was explored. Bibliofile’s stylus has two buttons (one is the nib) that send a wireless signal to the device using the voltage generated by applying strain to a piezoelectric element. The stylus thus does not require batteries or charging. The major internal elements. Of particular importance is the diode bridge, which allows current to be generated regardless of which way the generator is turned. Using a color e-paper display and capacitive touchscreen, the interface supports stylus or finger interaction. It is designed with the challenge of updating the display as little as possible to conserve energy.

Alternate E-Book

I am a voracious reader but I must confess that I prefer paper to the E-Books. However I won’t let my bias get in the way of showcasing the Bibliofile Electronic Book Reader. This one’s a nifty reader that uses page-turning gestures to generate the power necessary to update an e-paper display. The display supports something called the Active Reading margin which features apps like dictionary and word games that make reading fun without distracting much.

Flip-side is that you still need to hook it to the mains for recharging. The gestures (of page flipping) provide cognitive, mechanical and digital feedback to the person using the device; plus additional juice.

Nadeem explains in detail:
