A Look at IDEO's Book of the Future
The incomparable design firm IDEO has created three visions of the book of the future. But will interactive features actually help us read?
As Zach mentioned, the incomparable design firm IDEO has created three visions of the book of the future, all of which exist, predictably, on some sort of iPad-like tablet.
The first one, with its fact-checking feature, is kind of appealing to me, and it's undeniably fun to imagine how technology might change the reading experience. That said, what I actually want right now, much more than a Book of the Future with new "informational layers" and a social recommendation system, is simply more time to read the books of the present.
