Built-in Orderly Organized Knowledge device (BOOK)
It's a revolutionary breakthrough in technolgy--no wires, no electric circuits, no batteries, nothing to be connected or switched on. It's so easy to use even a child can operate it. Just lift its cover. Compact and portable, it can be used anywhere--even in the middle of nowhere--yet it is powerful enough to hold as much information as a CD-ROM disk.
Here's how it works: Each BOOK is constructed of
sequentially numbered sheets of paper (which can be recycled),
each capable of holding thousands of bits of information. These pages are locked together
with a custom-fit device called a binder which keeps the sheets in their correct sequence.
By using both sides of each sheet, manufacturers are able to cut costs in half. Each sheet
is scanned optically, registering information directly into your brain. A flick of the
finger takes you to the next sheet.
The BOOK may be taken up at any time and used by merely opening it. The "browse" feature allows you to move instantly to any sheet, and move forward or backward as you wish. Most come with an
"index" feature, which pinpoints the exact location
of any selected information for instant retrieval. An optional
"BOOKmark" accessory allows you to open the BOOK to
the exact place you left it in a previous session--even if the
BOOK has been closed. BOOKmarks fit univeral design standards;
thus a single BOOKmark can be used in BOOKs by various
Portable, durable and affordable, the BOOK is the
entertainment wave of the future, and many new titles are
expected soon, due to the surge in popularity of its
programming tool, the Portable Erasable-Nib Cryptic Intercommunication Language Stylus
