Introducing the new Bio-Optic Organized Knowledge device,
trade-named: BOOK.

BOOK is a revolutionary breakthrough in technology: no wires, no
electric circuits, no batteries, nothing to be connected or
switched on.  It's so 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
information as a CD-ROM disc.

Here's how it works: 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 a
custom-fit device called a binder which keeps the sheets in their
correct sequence.

Opaque Paper Technology (OPT) allows manufacturers to use both
sides of the sheet, doubling the information density and cutting
costs. Each sheet is scanned optically, registering information
directly into your brain.  A flick of the finger takes you to the
next sheet. BOOK may be taken up at any time and used merely by
opening it.

BOOK never crashes or requires re-booting.  The "browse" feature
allows you to move instantly to any sheet, and move forward or
backward as you wish. Many come with an "index" feature, which
pin-points the exact location of any selected information for
instant retrieval.

An optional "BOOKmark" accessory allows you to open BOOK to the
exact place you left it in a previous session - even if the BOOK
has been closed.  BOOKmarks fit universal design standards; thus a
single BOOKmark can be used in BOOKs by various manufacturers.
Conversely, numerous BOOKmarkers can be used in a single BOOK if
the user wants to store numerous views at once.  The number is
limited only by the number of pages in the BOOK.

You can also make personal notes next to BOOK text entries with an
operational programming tool, the Portable Erasable Nib Cryptic
Intercommunication Language Stylus (PENCILS).

Portable, durable, and affordable, BOOK is being hailed as a
precursor of a new entertainment wave.  Also, BOOK's appeal seems
so certain that thousands of content creators have committed to the
platform and investors are reportedly flocking.  Look for a flood
of new titles soon.

that is a nice one !
you can add that resolution and contrast of book are VERY hight.
and did you notice that humain instinctly use dichotomy search algorithm
with books ?
first open it at the middle, see if it is too far or not and, retry and
so on.
