bLink: Completing the Connection Between the Analog and Digital Worlds

Manolis Kelaidis, Designer, Royal College of Art

Date: Wednesday, June 20
Time: 8:50am - 9:15am
Location: Regency Ballroom

Books have inherent qualities that make them an irreplaceable medium, even today. They have survived unchanged for centuries and are one of the most familiar and bestselling products we know. For a particular type of user experience they simply have not been bettered. Digital media (portable devices, touch-screens, etc.), however, has been offering seductive new possibilities to readers, especially in terms of interactivity.

Can these two worlds, the digital and the physical, co-exist in a product that would offer the benefits of both? Manolis Kelaidis demonstrates his elegant ideas for next-generation books.
