COOL video of an interactive e-paper magazine

Here is a cool video of a prototype e-paper solution dubbed "iMag" (as interactive Magazine). If you ask me, it sorta turns the whole e-paper idea on its head.

Btw, the music... from what TV show is it again?

Gahh! The camera shake is really bad on that one! Very interesting video, even so. It looks like he's just working with a piece of paper in a clear plastic sleeve of some sort, I wish there was some discussion of what they're actually doing here, or what they expect to be doing eventually.

I don't recognize the music at all, TadW, sorry I can't help you there.

The way it was used in the video, it seemed more like an image capture tool... not quite "interactive."

It did make me think, though: Suppose an e-paper magazine page allowed you to tap on a text or image link with your finger or a pen, and call up the link on your PC screen? I'd call that interactive.

No idea what show the music came from. And was it me, or was that video fuzzy? (Darned glasses...)

Not really interactivity. Perhaps closer to image capture

The music comes from American Beauty OST(08) by Thomas Newman.
(Great movie by the way...)
