the page is a prototype ereader concept by designer jae kim that uses a semi-transparent e-ink screen to
display image and text. the project aims to find a more appropriate way to interact with newspapers in
a digital context. the concept marries the affordances of print and online newspapers into a new device.
for starters the e reader folds into segments much like newsprint, allowing it to be spread out on a table,
or folded up neatly on the train. this differs from other ereaders, which invent a new format that strays
from the original. beyond the product design kim also designed a flexible grid system that allows users
to see content in a broad way like in the newspaper, while also being able to directly interact and alter
content like on the web.
