This is another great find from the guys over at iPadCreative. Make sure you check out the rest of their blog. It really does have some interesting finds for both ipad users and for people interested in using iPads in education.
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.
