Blio is e-reader software platform created by Ray Kurzweil that was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in early January 2010. It has been reported that Blio will be free of charge and available for PCs, iPod Touch, and iPhone.
It preserves typography, illustrations and color.
Blio lets you insert highlights, notes, videos, and even webpages.
Blio diverges from traditional ereaders in a couple of ways: First, it's software, intended to be loaded on a variety of devices, from tablets to iPhones to laptops; and second, it’s full-colour, animated and interactive. It supports embedded web content, video and audio. It can render in a variety of ways, all of which are smoothly animated.
Blio, the application is only part of the story – the store that its tied to is also very important. Backed by Baker and Taylor, the world’s largest book distributor, Blio plans to launch with over a million titles; a couple hundred thousand will be newer/paid titles, while the rest will be public domain material.
