Merging printed paper publications and electronic media into one all-encompassing digital source, the Infinite Book is posed to eradicate all the headache-causing effects of reading off a monitor and the messiness (and weight) of jumbling newspapers, magazines and books together.

The Infinite Book is designed by Ewald Neuhofer and is the latest form of media that bridges the gap between the digital and analog arenas. Through the Infinite Book, which features a touchscreen interface so you can access links, you can flip through pages as you would through a normal book.

Basically, you get to “read the digital book with analog navigation,” says TheDesignBlog.org. The Infinite Book is also designed with a special folding functionality which allows user to fold it up like a newspaper for easy portability.
