the ‘bookmark light’ by kouichi okamoto uses a conductive ink that transmits electricity through the help of a lithium coin battery. the grid utilizes ink with nano size silver particles between a layer of film that forms the liquid crystal. created in collaboration with business venture agic inc. of the university of tokyo – the interactive design can be used as page tab or as a illuminative source, allowing one to carry on reading without disturbing a sleeping partner.

the transparent material displays the gadget’s technological functions, using the electrical circuit as its graphic emblem. the coin battery acts as the central feature piece and is used as the on and off button, turning a common place marker into a glowing object through one simple click.
