Dual-display ebook reader

It’s still very early days–this reader is just a prototype–but researchers at Maryland and Berkeley Universities have created an ebook reader with dual displays that has some of the things readers love about paper books.

With this reader, you can flip through pages, open and close the two displays to simulate turning pages, and compare different documents by separating the two displays.

People who tested the prototype had positive reactions, though they wanted the prototype to be lighter–which may come.

What do you think? Does it appeal to you?

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
