Several projects of the 60's principles are the precursors of today's electronic books. These projects include the NLS (online system) project headed by Doug Engelbart and the Stanford Research Institute (SRI), and the Hypertext Editing System and FRESS (Retrieval and Archival Editing System) projects headed by Anders Dam at Brown University.

Kobo Libra H2O Book eReader 2021

Much more ergonomic design than usual Kobo Libra H2O

One of the main differences between a common e-book reader or a high-end one, such as the Kobo Libra, is the design. In this case it has a handle on the side that serves to grip it more comfortably.

Whether you're left-handed or right-handed, it doesn't matter. Rotating the screen also rotates the orientation, so you can hold the reader in one hand or the other, as you prefer. You can also turn the page with the physical buttons, so with one hand you can do all the necessary movements.

Although the size is larger, its weight does not go beyond 192 grams, quite light, and it shows when you hold it.

In all ebook ereaders you can adjust the brightness of the screen, as is normal. The difference is that in this case you can make it adjust automatically, as in mobile phones.

In addition, the temperature of the screen can be adjusted to make it emit more warm light and less blue light, although everything will depend on each consumer.

History of eReader: Project Gutenberg

Michael S. Hart is credited with having invented the electronic book as we know it today. In 1971, University of Illinois student Michael S. Hart used a Xerox mainframe in the Materials Research Laboratory. The computer was used for data processing, but it was also connected to ARPAnet. Old internet .

Hart received a copy of the Declaration of Independence of the United States in a local food store commemorating the 4th of July. Alli was inspired to write the full text on the computer and to download it through ARPAnet. The archive, which many historians have known as the first electronic book, was downloaded by six people.

American Constitution and The Bible

Hart created electronic versions of other texts. The Declaration of Rights, the American Constitution and the Bible. He founded the Project Gutenberg, from where he found that the public domain texts were available for any person and that they could download them free of charge. El Proyecto Gutenberg is still being executed today, providing access to texts in plain text format that can be read in practically any digital device.

These books are distributed through the Internet and, at a first moment, they must be read on a computer. These large texts were difficult to read in pantallas and the pain of ojos was frequent
We can only speak of electronic books, because they are digitized, there is no electronic book reader. I have several attempts to manufacture an eReader with a backlit display, but all have failed. The effect of reading on a computer was not improved. Since an invention changed everything: electronic ink. (More History of eReader)

Hardware for eReading eBooks

History of eReaders in 1997: eInk Corporation developed a technology that would allow digital screens to reflect light like normal paper without the need for backlighting.
