Imagine a device that would resemble an ordinary book, where 50-100 pages are made of electronic “ePaper” with “old” paper feel texture plus the advantages of gadgets like the Amazon's Kindle: virtual bookshop, subscriptions, etc. You buy every book you want from the eStore and the content is updated on this device.
Here you have the old book reading/feeling experience with the advantages of today’s kindle-like features. Not an eBook but a "feelBook"
We have the technology already. we just have to attach the strings and sell it with a price tag near its (theoretical) contenders.
Gadget making people are so focused in features that they forget about the “experience” of using something.
