BiblioRoll rolls your e-books from a digital bookshelf

The BiblioRoll looks flat-out slick. It's a design study of a device that makes it easy to reach your digital fingers through a virtual bookshelf and pluck whatever e-book you need (which can be more than one at once). From the BiblioRoll website:

Quote:
BiblioRoll is a handy-in-sized device shaped circular cylinder, with a display divided into three tiers. The users can see the information on a display inside the body as they rotate a circumference of the cylindrical body. It is possible to display different information on each tier. With these interfaces of the device, they can put unique metadata on the book data to relate with the information dealt with this device. The users can manipulate physically and browse with this cylindrical input/output interface.
If you have difficulty grasping what this is all about, check out the BiblioRoll prototype in action in these Tube flicks:Thanks for the tip, erwin!

OK, now this looks like a solution in search of a problem. A big, huge, unwieldy device with 3 monitors, guaranteed to give you carpal-tunnel syndrome? Why not just use an iPod-like scrollwheel and menu system? It would be a lot faster, and easier to navigate.
