A new gesture based multi-touch eBook concept designed by the KAIST Institute of Information Technology Convergence has been demonstrated on Apple’s iPad. Showing us a glimpse of what we can expect to see in the near future when reading eBooks on tablet devices.
The new system has been designed to provide a more natural way of looking through any book. Including multiple page turning using multiple fingers together with faster swipes which turned more than one page at once. Enabling you to quickly advance or move backwards through the pages of your e-book.You can see the system in action in the short video created by KAIST after the jump.
Other features of the new page e-book navigation concept include page flipping with finger bookmarking, and longer presses with swipes which can then be used to turn multiple pages. The new concept interface prototype has already been patented, so you can expect to hopefully see the new technology making its way to mainstream applications on a range of tablets in the near future.
