Redesigning Paper

I observed that most of the students tend to print out the materials they wish to read. I have interviewed some people and what i gathered is that they don't get the same "feel" as a real book when reading an ebook. I think it would be really cool if we can redesign the whole experience. Probably make a paper thin tablet that runs on solar energy and let's underline and stuff like in a real book! and would really helpful to the environment

8/10 students i talked to feel the same way about using ebooks. If ebooks are so easier to use why isn't everyone using them.

Interesting thoughts Raghava – looking forward to hearing more on this in the upcoming Ideas phase. Make sure you post it again there too – and meanwhile you might like to check out the Feed Your Idea section here: http://bit.ly/oi_inspire Hoping to see more of you on OpenIDEO.

Hope you'll be back to post it in the Ideas phase as well. Meanwhile you might like to think about what research and insights would feed your Idea and post them here before the Research phase closes (in 2 weeks). Sometimes its a matter of thinking sideways, as our OpenIDEO colleague, Nathan, explains here: http://bit.ly/oi_analogous
