Introducing the new Bio-Optic Organized Knowledge device, called BOOK
BOOK is a revolutionary breakthrough in technology; no wires, no electric circuits, no batteries, nothing to be connected, or switched on. It’s 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 as a CD-ROM.
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 one of two different custom devices, a BINDER or DOUBLE STITCH BINDING, which keep the sheets in their correct sequence. Opaque Paper Technology (OPT) allows manufacturers to use both sides of the sheet, doubling the information density.
Each sheet is scanned optically, registering information directly to your brain. A flick of the finger takes you to the next sheet.
BOOK never crashes nor requires rebooting. The “browse” function allows instant movement to any sheet, forward or backward, as one wishes. Many come with an “index” feature, which pinpoints the exact location of any selected information for instant retrieval.
An optional “Bookmark” accessory allows you to open this device to the exact place you left it in a previous session — even if the device has been closed. bookmarks fit universal design standards; thus, a single bookmark can be used in devices by various manufacturers. Conversely, numerous bookmarkers can be used in a single device if the user wants to store numerous views at once. The number is limited only by the number of pages in the device. You can also make personal notes next to the text entries in this device with the optional programming tool, Portable Erasable Nib Cryptic Intercommunication Language Styli (PENCILS).
Portable, durable, and affordable, BOOK is being hailed as a precursor of a new entertainment wave. BOOK’s appeal seems so certain that thousands of content creators have committed to the platform and investors are reportedly flocking to the medium. Look for a flood of new books at your local library or bookstore!
Welcome to Throwback Thursday; I originally posted this in 2001! Still holds up. Wish I knew who wrote it but I could not find a definitive answer. Another internet mystery…
