The most natural eBook user interface yet seen?

Some have said that Apple's designs, both hardware and software, are so complete that it's almost impossible for competitors to come up with anything new without infringing on their patents. This smart eBook interface prototype from KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) shows that competing against Apple's innovation is certainly not impossible. Many of the ideas on show are some of the most innovatitve we've seen in a long while.

We hope to see this technology implemented on the iPad (and other eBook readers) in some shape or form shortly.

The only thing it lacks is the proper text/page of the back pages when moving (page is just white when moving) otherwise it would be perfect! The again you could always just pick up a real book purist's would argue!

Bleh... how about ditching the whole idea of pages and someone bring out a decent ebook reader with autoscrolling! Oh, wait, FlowReader already did that but Apple's draconian policies put them out of business. Seriously, I don't get the appeal of flipping pages in a digital book. Let's embrace what it is great about digital books (no "pages") and forget this page-flipping nonsense!
