“Bluebook” attempts to merge the physical and digital divide through touch sensitive pages. Covered in conductive ink, when certain phrases are pressed on the book’s pages, the resulting input communicates over Bluetooth with a nearby PC, triggering different actions. Although most of this can be done with “e-books” using touchscreens, the “BlueBook” attempts to bridge the gap between those familiar with new technology and others stuck in the stone ages of paper and print.
