LIBRARY / electronic book reading device


LIBRARY is a concept e-book reading device that inherits the experience of reading traditional books. When rotating the mechanical roller at the edge of LIBRARY, users can feel as if they are flipping through pages with their thumb. Meanwhile, animation shown on the display simulate the flipping motions. Users can locate bookmarked contents once they open LIBRARY from the front side; If the book is opened from the back side, users can access their entire e-book collection. To activate "keyboard mode", users can simply turn the device by 90 degrees, and type in keywords searching for books in their "bookshelf" and online store.
