Nelson, Coupland or Alice: The Future of Books?

With a hat tip to Dave Delaney, IDEO, a global design and innovation consultancy, has produced a video showcasing their vision on three potential scenarios for the future of books.

The common thread among the three seems to center around encouraging discussion, interaction and community among readers.  As an avid reader, I’m intrigued to say the least.

Do you see a future here, or are simpler e-readers like the Kindle and the Nook more than adequate at doing the job?  What about the iPad?
