U of Maryland and Berkeley Discuss a smarter Ebook (beware Kindle)

I really like the human-mechanistic thinking behind this ‘kindle killer’

Researchers at the University of Maryland at College Park and the University of California at Berkeley have recently unveiled a prototype (pdf) of a dual-display e-book reader. The reader features two detachable screens that can be viewed side by side like an open book, or with one screen folded behind the other like a paperback. The screens can also be flipped to simulate turning the pages of a book.
