a vision of the eBook future

posted in Media on August 1st, 2007

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s post about eBooks is this entry about a possible usage scenario of eBooks in the future: latest work, called “Possible ou probable” is a clip that shows off some very interesting ways of utilizing ePaper and eBooks:

According to this vision, ePaper will not only be used for reading in the future, but also for navigation, content creation / content remixing and rich media browsing. The interface looks like a mashup of the iPhone interface (note the pinching to zoom in and out) and Microsoft Surface and it looks like this kind of thing actually works.

While the clip is in French, you should be able to make out most of the important things based on the (visual) context. Enjoy!
