  • The Future of Reading Magazines & Newspapers Using a Touch Tablet: Take Note Apple!

    Alright so this isn't exactly iPhone News, but I am pretty sure most of us iPhone / iPod Touch fanatics are always delighted to hear about new ways touch technology will impact our lifestyles. As we've seen the iPod dramatically take hold of the portable music era, If Apple is to release a Tablet, and take some notes from the following research company, they may just do the same thing again, and dramatically change the way we interact with our media, not just the iPhone geeks.

    One can only hope that Apple Development Team also browses the web to see what other designers and development groups are coming up with, because the folks over at Bonnier R&D seem to have it all figured out as far as digital tablet readers go. It may not be a real tablet, but you get the idea nonetheless. I can only hope that Apple is taking notes on this one or they might have some competition out there.

    The following video is a corporate collaborative research project initiated by Bonnier R&D into the experience of reading magazines on hand-held digital devices. It illustrates one possible vision for digital magazines in the near future presented by design partners at the BERG.

    The concept aims to capture the essence of magazine reading, which people have been enjoying for decades; engaging and unique reading experience in which high-quality writing and stunning imagery buildup immersive stories.

    The concept uses the power of digital media to create a rich and meaningful experience, while maintaining the relaxed and curated features of printing magazines. It has been designed for a world in which interactivity, abundant information and unlimited options could be perceived as intrusive and overwhelming.
    Highly recommended watch if you like Touch Technology and it's impact on the future.

    Note: This is NOT an Apple Research Group. Although they should take note!

      i believe if the digital world of tablets wants us to all conform to their new substrate. they should make the illustrative colors as close to real life as possible. otherwise its just going to feel like reading a computer screen. which gets quite tiring on the eyes.
