Readlax / e-Reader


According to a survey that opening a book before bed can help you with sleep, although it depends on the type of the book, which you don’t normally read is best recommended. This is how we came up with the idea of Readlax, it brings e-reader to the next level with a micro-projector embedded. The projector casts your book onto the ceiling therefore the user can just lie down in bed reading comfortably. On Readlax, we placed a touch panel like the trackpad on laptop for exploring the additional functions, and 4 other quick buttons. Readlax is our ideal reading gadget for bedtime readers!
