Book Time, a physical book reader

bookturner.jpg

The Book Time unit turns the pages of magazines and catalogs automatically, making it easy for those who don't have the ability to do it themselves (as long as someone else helps them load it up, of course.) That tube in front looks a lot like something that is controlled by breath.

Which made me wonder: Do the Kindle or the Sony Reader either support any sort of remote control? A cursory search is that they do not, but the Kindle can be set to text-to-speech, which after turning down the volume, will operate as a sort of automatic page turning mechanism. That's okay, but there is a USB port on these things. They should support a basic forward/back input method. [Engadget]
