New Low Tech Solution
Introducing the new Bio-Optic Organized Knowledge device,

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

BOOK never crashes or requires rebooting, though, like
other devices,it can become damaged if coffee is spilled on
it and it becomes unusable if dropped too many times on a
hard surface. 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

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 optional programming tools, 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 invest. Look for a flood of new titles soon.
