Cybook Ocean: thin like…

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

The Cybook Ocean will be the thinnest reader in the world at a mere 7mm! That’s really thin. So thin, it’s hard to imagine without seeing it! So how can we demonstrate it visually? Photo of a reader next to a pencil, next to a coin… been there, done that. So we’re looking for some new ideas.

How would you show just how thin the Cybook Ocean is? The most creative idea could win a Cybook Odyssey 2013!

To get you started, here’s a photo of our very first Cybook, from over 12 years ago, next to the Cybook Ocean. We’ve come a long way, baby!

Happy reading and good luck to all,

Cybook Screensaver Contest: presenting our Cybook Stars!

Friday, October 4th, 2013

We are very excited to announce the winners of our Cybook Screensaver Contest!

In case you missed it, the contest was to create a new Cybook screensaver image. The creators of the winning images win fabulous prizes including a Cybook or a Cybook accessory of their choice, and the winning image will be included on the new Cybook Ocean along with our official screensavers!

First of all, we’d like to thank everyone who participated! We received such wonderful images, some funny, some poetic, all of them inventive! Choosing one first-prize winner was no easy task… in fact we ended up with TWO winners!

Bravo to Mayda A. and Yves G., who each win the Cybook of their choice! We’re delighted to present their images, which will be featured as screensavers on our Cybooks:

This reinterpretation of “La Liseuse” (“The Reader”) by Fragonard was created by Yves G.

Fragonard’s La Liseuse, by Yves G.

Here’s his explanation:

“I thought the painting of “the Reader” by Fragonard would be a good subject for an e-reader. To build another bridge between art and technology, I created a program which recomposes the painting using only letters. The blurry areas are the result of dozens of letters grouped together.”

This image is composed of 89999 letters!

Mayda A. sent us a beautiful ink drawing entitled “Aspri Lexi” which means “White Word” in Greek. “It portrays several aspects of reading and the written word: the enlightenment of our souls, the unlocking of knowledge, the timelessness of words, the introspective journey of our hearts and minds, the building of new realities, the branching of our roots…”

We found her drawing really beautiful, and we asked her if she could make a variation of it specifically for the Cybook. Here is the result:

In second place, we have another tie! Congratulations to Lydie B. whose image evokes the “secret garden” of reading,

The Reader, by Lydie B.

and Hervé L., for his image which is sure to strike a chord amongst fans of literary encounters of the third kind, and of Douglas Adams! It explains a lot about those mysterious objects in the sky. Clearly aliens don’t have Cybooks! (The caption at the bottom says: “*You’ll do anything when you have nothing left to read.”)

Each will receive the Cybook accessory of their choice, or a gift certificate good for ebooks from the Bookeen Store!

The People’s Choice Prize

For the first time, in addition to our own selection, we’re awarding a “People’s Choice” prize, chosen by you!

The votes have been counted on our blog, our Facebook page and our Pinterest album, and we’d like to congratulate Matthias S., with 123 votes altogether! Bravo to him, he’s won a Cybook accessory of his choice.

Don’t touch Matthias’ Cybook!

See all the images in our Pinterest album and our Facebook album.

Your favourite image didn’t win? Don’t forget that you can personalise the screensaver on your Cybook with the image of your choice! :)

Feeling inspired? Set your imagination free and create your own screensaver image! Our Pinterest and Facebook albums will remain open, and we’d be thrilled to see any images you’d like to share with us and the whole Bookeen community!

Again, congratulations to all our winners, a heartfelt thank you to all who participated, and happy reading to everyone!

Cybook Screensaver Contest: Vote for the People’s Choice prize!

Friday, September 13th, 2013

Our Cybook Screensaver Contest is over, now to award the prizes! In case you missed it, the contest was to create a new Cybook screensaver image. The creators of the winning images can win fabulous prizes including a Cybook or a Cybook accessory of their choice, and the winning image will be included on Cybooks along with our official screensavers!

A huge thank you to all who participated! We received such wonderful images, some funny, some poetic, all of them inventive! Choosing the winners was no easy task… as you will see!

NEW!

For the first time, in addition to our own selection, we’re awarding a “People’s Choice” award, chosen by you!

And, in response to feedback from our community, we’ve extended the voting period, and it’s now possible to vote directly on our blog!

As we received some images at the very last minute, they didn’t benefit from the same visibility as those sent at the very beginning of the contest. Also, we want to allow everyone to participate, without needing to have an account on facebook or pinterest.

The winner of the People’s Choice prize will receive a Cybook accessory of their choice or a gift check good for ebooks in the BookeenStore. The winner will be announced along with the winners selected by Bookeen, at the end of the vote!

With no further ado, here are the images in the running. Hurry and vote for your favourites, you have through MONDAY 23 SEPTEMBER!

Note: you may vote for as many of the images as you like, but of course, only once. ;)

Best of luck to all, and happy reading!
