Bookstore That Cares - Planetopija

Many years of experience with the team behind Biovege cut down the customary analytic prep time as the client’s values were already familiar to us.

Through virtual shelves displayed in three large touch screen devices, digital books will be chosen to buy and read, but also on portable devices known as tablets, which are exposed for demonstration. The proposal seeks to exclude from printing books on paper, reducing the environmental impact of logging. Another advantage is the storage power of the tablet, enabling a multitude of publications in a single device, eliminating the need for physical space for this purpose. Another dif... More
