The eBookmark Uses Touchable Leds to Let You Know Where You Left Off

The eBookmark was created for those who haven't yet abandoned paper books in favor of eBooks. This electronic bookmark features a touch interface that allows you to specify which paragraph and side you left off on. It was designed by the husband and wife team of Terry Burton and Jinna Kim.

The eBookmark is powered by a Atmel 8-bit processor and uses flashing LED lights to let you know where you stopped reading. The bookmark was created to bridge the gap between eBooks and paper books, and the designers saw it as nothing more than a one-off work of art. That being said, there is apparently interest in a commercial run of the eBookmark, so don't be shocked if you find yourself ditching your paper markers in favor of electronic ones sometime soon.
