Ray Kurzweil, who thought up pretty much everything, ever, has entered the e-book fray. Due to debut at CES in Las Vegas next week, Kurzweil's Blio comes from a completely different angle than the current e-ink readers.
Blio is not a device. Rather, it is a "platform" which could run on any device, but would be most obviously at home on a tablet. The software will be free and available for phones, netbooks and so on.
