An old one (seems to have been circulating on the web for a few years, would love to credit whoever wrote it initially), but a goodie if you’ve not seen it:
Introducing the new Bio-Optic Organised Knowledge device, trade name “BOOK”
BOOK is a revolutionary breakthrough in technology: no wires, no electric circuits or 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 is how it works : BOOK is constructed of sequentially numbered sheets of re-cyclable paper, 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. Each sheet is scanned optically, registering information directly into your brain. A flick of your finger takes you to the next sheet. BOOK may be taken up at any time and used merely by simply opening it.
BOOK never crashes or requires re-booting. 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 pinpoints 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 BOOK is closed.
BOOKMARKS fit universal design standards; thus a single BOOKMARK can be used in any BOOK produced by any manufacturer.
Conversely, numerous BOOKMARKS can be used in a single BOOK if the user wants to store numerous views at once. The number of BOOKMARKS is only limited to the number of pages in the BOOK.
You can also make personal notes next to BOOK text entries with an optional programming tool, named “Portable Erasable Nib Cryptic Intercommunication Language Stylus” – or – “PENCILS”.
Portable, durable and affordable, the BOOK is being hailed as the precursor of a huge 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 new phenomenon. Look for a flood of new titles soon.
All BAD PRESS iNK titles are available in BOOK format.
