The Kuote Digital Reader Turns Textbooks into Virtual Notes

— December 6, 2011 — Lifestyle
As a student I can safely say that I wish I had the Kuote Digital Reader right about now. The Kuote Digital Reader is a conceptual gadget designed to share and store text from books.

Kuote is compact and easy to use. Simply hold the device over a section of text and wait for it to appear onscreen. Using the small scroll wheel, move the cursor to the section you want to highlight. When you reach the point you want to commit to save, drag your fingers over the words and watch them become digitally highlighted. After the text has been highlighted you can either save it in a cloud memory bank or share it using Facebook and Twitter. The Kuote Digital Reader could very well revolutionize the way people study. Here's hoping it goes from concept to reality before the end of next semester.
Trend Themes
1. Digital Note-taking - Companies can capitalize on the demand for tech-savvy note-taking devices by innovating on digital note-taking products for students and professionals alike.
2. Scan & Share - Opportunities lie in creating gadgets and applications that allow real-time scanning and sharing of text and images both on social media platforms and in personal clouds.
3. Paper-to-digital - Businesses can look at investing in technologies that allow seamless conversion of analog notes into digital ones with the help of AI and machine learning.
Industry Implications
1. Education - The education industry can benefit from digital note-taking tools that facilitate easier studying and note-sharing among students and teachers.
2. Publishing - There is potential for publishers and e-reader companies to innovate on products that allow for interactive and collaborative learning experiences through digital note-taking and sharing.
3. Productivity - Industries ranging from finance to human resources can benefit from tech-savvy note-taking devices that facilitate better communication, collaboration, and productivity among professionals.
