HCI@UBC Seminar – Ink to Pixels: A Personal Experience

In 1998, SoftBook Press unveiled one of the worlds’s first eBook reading devices. The SoftBook set the whole eBook market in motion with its creation of a standalone reading device, the DNA of which is present in all modern eBook reading devices today. At the same time SoftBook Press also created a complete ecosystem for the online discovery, sale, and delivery of digital content, and the popular ePUB electronic publishing standard.

As “Architect of The Experience” Aleksey Novicov will describe the creation of a mobile reading experience that mimicked and extended the experience of reading reading ink on paper.
