Designer Kyle Bean created a design to demonstrate how technology has changed the way we source information and relate to books. He made a laptop out of a cheap book to create a visual that illustrates the issue.

Yanko Design notes, "The book/laptop, has a CD-Rom drive complete with CD, a keyboard that can be removed so as to access the battery, and a switch that turns off the screen light once the book is closed. The book when closed, looks just like a regular book until opened. The words, “The Future of Books” is inscribed on the spine.

Very clever design. Very clear message.
