Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) February 15, 2008
InventHelp®, America's leading inventor service company, announces that one of its clients, an inventor from Erie, Pa., has designed a portable electronic book. This invention is patented.
The "E-Z Read" could enable readers to store large amounts of written material electronically. The invention could save students from having to lug a backpack full of heavy textbooks. The unit would mark the last-read page automatically when the reader closes his or her book. The quiet "page turning" feature and screen with soft backlighting could enable users to read in bed at night without disturbing a spouse. The E-Z Read would be producible in several variations and feature a compact, lightweight and fully portable design.
The E-Z Read would consist of a battery-operated textbook with a hinge-open design and dual display screens that are sized to that of full-page text. The device would display text and graphics stored on digital media such as a CD or flash memory card. The electronic book could have its own built-in hard drive for access to and storage of multiple texts. The device would also feature touch-screen operation, as well as a few basic controls for power, page advance and bookmark access. The first variation would be a music-book version whereby the pages could be set to advance automatically and a tempo rate can be set and followed by a musician; or pages could be advanced via a foot pedal attachment. The second version would be a design for magazine downloads from on-line publishers. This model would have internet connectivity features to download online publisher content on a subscription basis. The third model would have a recharging console. A fourth model would have a built-in audio and text-to-speech conversion for audio book playback.
