booksNow here is a hi-tech low-tech mind fuck from heaven. Bob Books has created a way for you to record a short video, send it off to them, and they will show up at your front door grinning like when your dad surprised you with a puppy at Christmas and hand you a flip book of your home video. Some of that is not true, but what is true is I love knowing we can get personalized flip books. It just goes to show that people miss things which are tactile. No amount of Bose speakers can compare to that fun little fip fip fip fip fip fip noise that happens while looking at a real paper flip book. Somehow, watching pages fly past and create a moving image is more mysterious, more magical, and more enjoyable then all the wires and blueteeth and interwebs in the world. K$
