Next Generation Book Gizmos

I’m so glad I’m living in the future! Now, where’s my jet pack??

Watch this amazing TED video where software developer Mike Matas shows what can be done with the next generation of books.

Such an elegant way to read and write books. Can you imagine a child of the future saying he doesn’t want to read when he has one of these books in his hands?

I have a lot of writer, reader and teacher peeps … weigh in! Do you want to read books like this? Do you want to write books like this? What would you write about? Can you anticipate teaching with books like this? What would be the pitfalls and the promise of using them?

    Whoa, that’s crazy! Not sure if I love it or hate it. Blowing on an iPad seems existentially right, like an ‘Angry Al Gores’ game.
    Could Smell-o-vision be far behind??

      Smell-o-vision sounds cool until the hacktivists take over. Imagine what they’d do to an Angry Al Gore game!
