Solution

Unfolding acts as a complete haptic experience for the new reading environments and book supports, speaking about their origins: wood (the primordial material of the typed book) and flexible joints (as those of the first european printing press in 1450), but also about the evolution of the digital reading and books, through the digital touch screens incorporated in the flexible wood panels.

Yes
Would it be possible to turn your idea into a reality, or at least create a prototype of it, at short notice, i.e. by the Frankfurt Book Fair in October 2014?
Yes
What do you estimate the costs for the prototype or the final implementation of your idea to be?
Work in progress
