Rolling Up The eBook

Love it or hate, eBooks and Readers are here to stay. Hardcore paper-buffs like me find it hard to embrace the sterile, cold feel of glass and metal (or plastic), when all we want to do is curl up with a warm book. However for the sake of evolution, I take it upon me to present to you a concept that could be the future of e-reading; eRoll! The current trend is either the iPad-way (touchscreen) or the Kindle-way (screen + keypad), with the common factor being a rigid display. eRoll predicts a future where a roll-able flexible screen will be used, thus reducing the size of the book to a baton. Sigh!

    e-Roll is a good design idea in general,to improve e-rolling color screen technology applications and make it available in the market with accepted quality and price cost,must make design suits the TV large thin rolling color screen application first,the Tv market is very large market,can then make the e-book reader application using the rolling technology able to be available in the market with accepted price.e-rolling manufacturing technology is less cost and fast to produce(like printing press fast…,but the e-rolling quality is still not good enough and needs more work and time to be accepted ,the thin touch e-pad,or i-pad technology average 10 inch size,suits the market quite well, quality and cost,and suits the e-education market , press…
