Why have a dual screen eReader when 3, 4, or 5 will do?

You’re looking at the work of Nicholas Chen, a PhD student up at the University of Maryland. He’s been working on the concept of cooperative single screen ereaders for a few years now. As you can see from the video, he’s pulled off some rather interesting features.

The video is after the break.
