Bio-Optic Organized Knowledge device

Book City Web pageI recently purchased several books (yes, real books) at a Toronto store called Book City. They provided a book mark as many book stores do and the other night, I noticed the writing on the back side. Very creative.


Introducing the new Bio-Optic Organized Knowledge device – BOOK

BOOK is a revolutionary breakthrough in technology; no wires, no electric circuits, no batteries, nothing to be connected, or switched on. It’s easy to use. Even a child can operate it.

Compact and portable, it can be used anywhere – even sitting in an armchair by the fire – yet it is powerful enough to hold as much as a CD-ROM.

BOOK is constructed of sequentially numbered sheets of paper (recyclable), each capable of holding thousands of bits of information. The pages are locked together with one of two different custom devices, a BINDER or DOUBLE STICH BINDING, which keep the sheets in their correct sequence. Opaque Paper Technology (OPT) allows manufacturers to use both sides of the sheet, doubling the information density.

Each sheet is scanned optically, registering information directly to your brain. A flick of the finger takes you to the next sheet.

BOOK never crashes nor requires rebooting. The “browse” function allows instant movement to any sheet, forward or backward, as one wishes. Many come with an “index” feature, which pinpoints the exact location of any selected information for instant retrieval.

Book City LogoPortable, durable, and affordable, BOOK is being hailed as a precursor of a new entertainment wave. BOOK’s appeal seems so certain that thousands of content creators have committed to the platform and investors are reportedly flocking to the medium. Look for a flood of new books at Book City.

  1. Great. For me there is nothing as good as a hardback book in large print to enjoy. As my book pile includes so many hard copy books the backlog on my Kindle is increasing and soon I will stop buying anymore e books especially as prices are rising for new books and the differential with hard copy seems to be narrowing. A good used book at virtually nothing plus carriage is far better value for money and a library loan book even more so. I think I will be long gone by the time the supply of used books starts to decline from Kindle books always being new books.

  2. Haha! Love that. I still prefer a warm and cuddly paper book to the digital kind. Enough of lit screens. Screens will never replace that sense of knowing just where something was in a text, being able to see how far you have to go at a glance, or the smile a book brings when you see it sitting there on the shelf.
