Digital? Print? Book lovers don’t really care; we just want more books. A digital-print combo, however, is certain to capture our attention. Portugal-based engageLab unites the two modes of reading with Bridging Book, and app that allows the reader to turn the pages of a printed book while, through the magic of magnets, the app follows along, extending the book into the iPad’s screen.

With the extra day off this past weekend, did you complete any DIY projects? If so, please feel free to share them with us. I’m working on a couple of DIY iPad projects myself. If they work out, I’ll be sure to share them with you. Last week, we told you about a complex electronics-based iPad project using a modified solar powered lamp.
