IDEO: e reader concepts

nelson

the design firm IDEO recently developed a series of e reader concepts to show three different ways of interacting with next generation devices. nelson, coupland and alice each present a different mode of interaction that goes beyond technological specifications. nelson looks at books from a larger perspective, showing users how books have influenced others and links a book’s subject matter to current events. this design also has built-in fact-checking systems and provides both sides of issues discussed in the text. coupland, on the other hand, explores the social world of books by allowing users to share their reading with friends and colleagues. this software would allow people to see what others are reading and send recommendations. alice takes a different approach, developing new ways that narratives can be explored across digital platforms.
