According to an advertisement in the upcoming CSUN conference program, Hims is planning to debut a new version of the BookSense, the BookSense DS, featuring a screen which visually displays text. We have no official word from GW Micro currently, but a reception for new products has been announced for March 24. We'll post more information as we find it.Source: Go to source

Very cool, though, for us blind guys, I hope it bosts of more then just a Screen.

I don't understand the point of a sscreen. If the screen is for low vision users, how big will this new BookSense be in order to make the print even remotely readable. Just sounds like an add on that will only drive up the cost. If I am missing a good use for a screen, please let me know.
