A Bendable Reader?

Hat tip to the folks at QuiteLikeIt.com (who, might I add, also are doing our wedding invites) for posting about the upcoming Skiff Reader. Let me just wet your palette with some photos.






I think this last photo is what has me jazzed the most. It's BENDABLE! Why? The specifications have it listed as having a "Rugged Metal-Foil e-paper Display" as well as "Silicon thin-film-transistors (TFT) on flexible stainless-steel substrate," and, perhaps best of all, it's shatter AND crack proof. So the big question is, how can I get my hands on a free one of these? I'm looking to really branch out. "Brand" myself as it were. But really I just want nifty and fun gadgets to mess around with and give away on this here blog.

I wonder if it's Hebrew character compatible?

I've shied away from an E-reader because I can't use it on Shabbat when I do most of my reading.

I'm not sure why the bendable feature is necessary but it's definitely cool.

I saw this on a tech programme the other night. I think it's one of those things I wold love, but then not use it much. I've done that so many times... *sigh*

So cool though!

Yum technology. I don't know whether I'd ever end up using it, but it sure does look tempting!

@Ansky I feel you on this. I do a lot of non-Shabbos reading, however. But I feel you :)

@Rachel Nifty to the max!

@Kate I feel the same way. I think about getting one of those, but I'm *so* attached to physical books that it almost pains me to think about *not* buying the physical book.
