Myst, one of the most beloved and treasured gaming franchises in the history of games, brought to amazing life the metaphor of books opening new worlds. Now, one fan has taken this metaphor almost to literal levels and created a 'working' Myst linking book.
A 6-years-in-the-making project, Myst fan Mike Ando details the creation of the book on his website. Ripping out the insides of a Harper's New Monthly Magazine tome, Ando has replaced the pages with a touch screen, a Intel Z530P running at 1.6GHz CPU and other fancy things this writer doesn't really understand to basically create a mini desktop computer inside the book.
The device...er....book can play all the games from the Myst series and, reportedly, Half Life 2 at 30fps. Amazingly, Ando is selling his Myst linking book for the bargain price of $15,625.
