The Kno - Revolutionize Higher Education?


Usually I'm against slate systems, especially those without a keyboard. However the Kno has a very interesting user interface and promises to help remove the massive amount of scholar textbooks.


Why get rid of scholar books:
- You must buy the current version, which is revised by next year and re released (now your version is useless) - Imagine how schools deal with this with thousands of books.
- The bigger the book the more weight to carry around. Digital formate stores tons of books with a small device and they don't weight more.
- More pages = more trees killed

Once they pair tablets/slates with something like Pixel Qi they will have something that can replace those massive books.
