The Dutch laboratory of Charles Nipel, part of the Academy Jan van Eyck - Institute of Fine Arts and Design, created a book with heat-sensitive pages that remain completely black until the reader fires on them. This ability laboratory labeled a book with a very appropriate title - "451 degrees Fahrenheit" Ray Bradbury. The novel’s epigraph states that the ignition temperature of the paper is 451 ° F. The plot of the novel, published in 1953, is based on the story of Utopian America, where books are prohibited, and firefighters are ordered to burn any found. This makes the concept of the book just cosmically cool. "Burning" the book you read it. We are delighted!

Fortunately, the pages of the book are fireproof.

Fortunately, this is not an ordinary concept, because the creators of this experimental book are planning to put it into production.
