Plastic Logic Reader; technology for the future?

18 Sep

Well, maybe in the near future (about a few years later?). This technology is developed by Plastic Logic and has marked a possible revolution of traditional print media. They are improving this technology (the pictures in the reader is initially black and white and now it is coloured) and through mass production, this technology might be affordable and go mainstream. This reader is much lighter than the current eReader and is flexible (you can bend it), for now it can show pictures and some information on its screen and its function will be more sophisticated and advanced in the future. The reader have a high possibility to overtake traditional newspaper as people will not have to buy newspaper everyday as the latest news will be updated on the reader itself and it is lighter than newspaper and is easy to carry around. This video below shows a demo of the reader and i believe the reader was in its initial development:

 

 

and now the screen on the reader is coloured and more flexible.

 

 

Be prepared to see more of such developments in the future

This is a very interesting and lighthearted essay. The points she has made is quite true and interesting. I have found that some of the points she made was applicable to me too.

A Little Blog of Books

The eBook debate continues to rage incessantly and provoke some very important questions.    Is the controversy less about the value of books and more about the development of modern technology?  Who are the winners and the losers in this supposed eBook revolution?  Does it really matter what format books are available in?  For many people, it certainly does.

Although I don’t actually own an e-reader yet, I do plan to get a Kindle soon (hopefully for Christmas this year) after borrowing my sister’s one earlier this summer.  I will be using it almost exclusively for when I’m commuting by train as it is the practical side of e-readers which appeals to me the most.
