In this paper we describe our efforts at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Laboratory toward realizing an electronic book comprised of hundreds of electronically addressable display pages printed on real paper substrates.

We outline the technology we are developing to bring this about and describe a number of applications that such a device enables.
