a digital reading book"faltar" is a digital device to read, make notes, edit and interlink texts.
The reading and interaction space is divided into three sections and can be reduced or enlarged by folding the display. This idea is designed for opening several text simultaneously, for commenting and linking them.
The touchscreen allows physical interaction with the items on the screen. Additionally, a stylus pen can be used for marking text or making a new entry.
The interface components are structured and arranged in the three different parts of the screen. The menu is located on the left section, the middle section is reserved for writing. In reading mode, all three sections of the screen are used for reading.
The hard case with the three screen sections and its foldable integral hinges feels like a notebook and can be manufactured by using a two-component injection modeling process.
