Ebook Readers: Getting Better — But Not Good Enough?

This video details an ebook reader developed by researchers at Maryland and Berkeley Universities. It appears that they studied the habits of readers of paper books and attempted to integrate capabilities into this reader that address those habits. Take a look. It’s amazing.

The two leaves can be opened and closed to simulate turning pages, or even separated to pass round or compare documents. When the two leaves are folded back, the device shows one display on each side. Simply turning it over reveals a new page.

But will they ever be good enough?

    I don’t think I could snuggle up in bed with an electronic reader. I like the concept and I hope they continue to make improvements, I just don’t think they will ever replace a real book.
