Introducing the new Bio-Optic Organized Knowledge device, trade named:
BOOK

BOOK is a revolutionary breakthrough in technology: no wires, no
electric circuits, no batteries, nothing to be connected or switched on.
It's so easy to use, even a child can operate it.

Compact and portable, it can be used anywhere -- even sitting in an
armchair by the fire yet it is powerful enough to hold as much information as a CD-ROM disc.

Here's how it works:

BOOK is constructed of sequentially numbered sheets of paper (recyclable), each capable of holding thousands of bits of information. The pages are locked together with a custom-fit device called a
binder which keeps the sheets in their correct sequence.

Opaque Paper Technology (OPT) allows manufacturers to use both sides of the sheet, doubling the information density and cutting costs. Experts are divided on the prospects for further increases in information density; for now, BOOKS with more information simply use more pages.

Each sheet is scanned optically, registering information directly into your brain. A flick of the finger takes you to the next sheet.
BOOK may be taken up at any time and used merely by opening it.

BOOK never crashes or requires rebooting, though like other display devices it can become unusable if dropped overboard. The "browse" feature allows you to move instantly to any sheet, and move forward or
backward as you wish. Many come with an "index" feature, which pin-points the exact location of any selected information for instant retrieval.

An optional "BOOKmark" accessory allows you to open BOOK to the
exact place you left it in a previous session even if the BOOK has
been closed.

BOOKmarks fit universal design standards; thus, a single BOOKmark can be used in BOOKs by various manufacturers. Conversely, numerous BOOK markers can be used in a single BOOK if the user wants to store numerous views at once. The number is limited only by the number of pages in the BOOK.

You can also make personal notes next to BOOK text entries with an
optional programming tool, the Portable Erasable Nib Cryptic
Intercommunication Language Stylus (PENCILS).

Portable, durable, and affordable, BOOK is being hailed as a
precursor of a new entertainment wave. Also, BOOK's appeal seems so
certain that thousands of content creators have committed to the platform and investors are reportedly flocking. Look for a flood of new titles soon.


Looks like we are ahead of the technology curve, Noodlemantras! :lol:

You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Wait a minute, didn't they say that about the 8-track? (darn it, just dated myself again! And yes, I still have my 8-track player - and tapes)

But I have always been an early adopter of new technology, so I have been buying the various versions of BOOK, (lately, versions endorsed by a Mr. J. Depp).

I'm glad to hear that the creators of BOOK have committed to continue this venture.

Really! I am always so impressed with kids today and their computer skills (and feeling hopelessly inadequate myself) - and here I have been happily operating BOOKs since infancy!

DITHOT - you got me doing a double take looking up at my calendar several times as I read about these BOOKS - you sure you haven't got today mixed up with April fool's day?!!?!? - have you and Liz become writing partners or who is going to take credit for this delightful piece of prose?!!?

lizbet, we can't take the author credit and I don't know who deserves it either. The piece came to me in an email from a family member yesterday. It was too good not to share! :bounce:

Now, if only there were a way to easily pack and transport my hundreds of Bio-Optic Organized Knowledge devices, I would be on :cloud9:

I also use the trusty blue highlighter marker! That was great! Thanks DITHOT. Such a simple device, THE BOOK. The feelings I get when touching the pages of a good book and the thoughts the words on the page bring out in me. I have never heard the book put in such terms.
That was enlightening!

That's great DITHOT! I've always been on the cutting edge of technology all these years and didn't even know it! :cool:
