Was the E-Reader Actually Invented 64 Years Ago In Spain?

Back in 1949, a Spanish woman by the name of María José Rodríguez Fortiz Ángela Ruiz Robles created a prototype of a device that was basically a very crude and primitive version of today’s e-reader. “It reportedly had a zoom function,” Moran writes, “where readers could focus in on a particular area of the text.”

The article also explains that “the device worked with pressurized air, allowing readers to add different spools containing the pre-loaded content.”
