Bibliofile, the E-Reader With a Page-Turning Hinge

There’s a lot to look forward e-reader market, but even touch screens, which haven’t made it onto the average device, don’t provide the tactile pleasure of a real book.

There’s a lot to look forward e-reader market, but even touch screens, which haven’t made it onto the average device, don’t provide the tactile pleasure of a real book. Nadeem Haidary’s Bibliofile tries to mimic that feeling with a hinge that you bend up or down to turn the digital pages. It’s a slick-looking device with a thin profile, but it’s lacking in other “wow” features that you’d expect from a design. The biggest issue is that Haidary dreamed up the Bibliofile to address problems with reading on the computer — difficulty on the eyes, lack of portability and inability to mark texts — but those shortcomings have been overcome by existing e-readers on the market.
