I came across this video showing some interesting interface elements for navigating through ebooks:
I have been a big fan of ebooks from back in the Rocket eBook days (Anybody remember this device?), and am really excited that the publishing industry seems to have finally reached the tipping point with going to digital. It’s clear that refinements like these will simply accelerate the ebook adoption process, and I love seeing innovation like this taking place in this space.
My current e-reader of choice is the iPad Kindle app. Amazon’s development and continued support of the Kindle has been the critical factor in getting the ebook marketplace to this point. Of course, Apple’s announcement of iBooks Author last week is a sign that things are starting to heat up here and I’m excited about that as well. Clearly, the future is still up for grabs, and there is no shortage of opportunity for creative minds to evolve and shape this space moving forward.
Kudos to the folks at KAIST Institute of Information Technology Convergence that developed this – it is really well done.
