The Inflight e-Reader

Last week, we saw that ePaper can be used in planes for the pilots. But they can be used by the passengers too:

"Maarten Poot has won the Creative Challenge after his Inflight E-reader idea was voted the best for the future of air transport. This joint initiative by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and the Dutch social networking site Hyves is intended to give talented young people an opportunity to present refreshing ideas on the future of air transport."

"The Inflight E-Reader allows passengers to read newspapers, magazines and books in their own language. According to the panel of judges this innovative concept reflects the ambition to make air transport more sustainable. The Inflight E-Reader not only ensures that fewer paper media are required on board, but also gives passengers access to the latest news. The logistical and technical feasibility of the Inflight E-Reader will be assessed in the coming period."
