Strange, funny views of our world
Introducing the new Bio-Optic Organised Knowledge
device, trade named: B.O.O.K.
B.O.O.K. is a revolutionary breakthrough in technology:
no wires, no electric circuits, not batteries, nothing
to be connected or switched on. It is so easy to use,
even a child can operate it.
Compact and portable, it can be used anywhere – even
sitting in an armchair by the fire – yet it is powerful
enough to hold as much information as a CD-ROM disc.
Here’s how it works:
B.O.O.K. is constructed of sequentially numbered sheets
of paper (recyclable) each capable of holding thousands
of bits of information. The pages are locked together
with a custom-fit device called a binder, which keeps
the sheets in their correct sequence.
Opaque Paper Technology (OPT) allows manufacturers to
use both sides of the sheet, doubling the information
density and cutting costs. Experts are divided on the
prospects for further increases in information density;
for now, B.O.O.K.s with more information simply use more
Each sheet is scanned optically, registering information
directly into your brain. A flick of the finger takes
you to the next sheet. B.O.O.K. may be taken up at any
time and used merely by opening it.
Unlike other display devices, B.O.O.K. never crashes or
requires rebooting, and it can even be dropped on the
floor or stepped on without damage. However, it can
become unusable if immersed in water for a significant
period of time. The “browse” feature allows you to move
instantly to any sheet and move forward or backward as
you wish. Many come with an “index” feature, which
pinpoints the exact location of selected information for
An optional “B.O.O.K. mark” accessory allows you to
open B.O.O.K. to the exact place you left it in a
previous session – even if the B.O.O.K. has been closed.
B.O.O.K. mark fits universal design standards; thus, a
single B.O.O.K mark can be used in B.O.O.K.s by various
manufacturers. Conversely, numerous B.O.O.K markers can
be used in a single a B.O.O.K. if the user wants to
store numerous views at once. The number is limited
only by the number of pages in the B.O.O.K.
You can also make personal notes next to B.O.O.K. text
entries with an optional programming tool, the Portable
Erasable Nib Cryptic Intercommunication Language Stylus
Portable, durable, and affordable, B.O.O.K. is hailed as
a precursor of a new entertainment wave. Also,
B.O.O.K.s appeal seems so certain that thousands of
content creators have committed to the platform and
investors are reportedly flocking
