This is an interesting videos from Editis, a French publisher on the future of the book. Its a bit long, but worth a watch. Now I don’t speak any French but here is what I *think* I saw happening
- scanning barcodes of book at a traditional bookstore to purchase them on the ebook reader
- write on the books with a stylus
- multimedia content – the guide books
- sharing copies from one ereader to the next
If this were available today I’d buy one right now.
