(An eBook reader can be a software application for use on a computer such as Microsoft's free Reader application, or a book-sized computer that is used solely as a reading device such as Nuvomedia's Rocket eBook.) Users can purchase an eBook on diskette or CD, but the most popular method of getting an eBook is to purchase a downloadable file of the eBook (or other reading material) from a Web site (such as Barnes and Noble) to be read from the user's computer or reading device. Generally, an eBook can be downloaded in five minutes or less ......................................................................................................................... ..............

  12. Ambigrams One type of visual puzzle I’ve explored is ambigrams — words written so they read in more than one way. Here are some ambigram logos (not by me).
  13. Ambigrams I’ve created See more of my ambigrams at http://scottkim.com
  14. Make your own ambigrams chump  Write this word in connected cursive, leave bowl of P slightly open. Instant ambigram! USA  Write this so it reads the same right side up and upside down. S is easy. What about U/A? Adobe  Write this so it reads the same upside down. Can you do it?
  15. DESIGN EDUCATION Design Education Puzzles that change how you think
  16. Working within a fixed form Most puzzle designers work within an existing form
  17. Topic: Letter parts I let the topic dictate the form. For instance, what puzzle teaches the parts of letters?
  18. Vocabulary 1. A vocabulary puzzle reinforces names, not concepts.
  19. Multiple choice quiz 2. A visual quiz puzzle reinforces concepts.
  20. Puzzle (adobe.com) 3. A perceptual puzzle, like this one from adobe.com, trains thinking. Match each detail with a letterform.
  21. Counter Proposal (NewMedia) Here’s a perceptual puzzle from NewMedia about fonts. Spaces in & around letters are “counters”.
  22. Counter Proposal (NewMedia) Match each counter with the letter it is from.
  23. Myst Grayscale painting Elevation map 3D rendered image The artists behind Myst converted a gray scale painting into an elevation map. White=high, black=low.
  24. Cybermesh I made this into a puzzle by using CyberMesh, a Photoshop plugin by John Knoll, author of Photoshop.
  25. Normal Face Here’s how Cybermesh turns a grayscale image of John’s face into a 3D mesh.
  26. Inverted Changing the grayscale image changes the mesh. E.g. inverting black and white turns the mesh inside out.
  27. Posterized Posterizing the image creates stairsteps.
  28. Pinch Pinching the image enlarges the nose.
  29. Blurred Blurring the image creates this ghostly face.

  33. Color

  37. Magazine puzzles A way of writing about a topic  Regular puzzles increase loyalty  Contests increase involvement 
  38. VizAbility Interactive puzzles let you do more with 3D.
  39. Vase/Profile Figure/ground is a concept that works well as a game. The figure here is the vase, the ground is the faces.
  40. Escher
  41. Simplify To make this visual illusion interactive, first simplify the shapes by putting them on a grid.
  42. Make Interactive If you drag a black object, there’s white underneath. If you drag a white object, there’s black underneath.
