Theodore Gray, the developer of “The Elements” app and the co-founder of Wolfram Alpha, has formed a new company called Touch Press:
Touch Press – Our Vision Books are one of the great defining inventions of our civilization–and today they are poised for a revolution. Our goal is to create a new kind of book that makes use of emerging consumer platforms such as iPad, as well as the latest computation capabilities and high-performance visual media. We believe that we now have the capability to redefine the book, reinvent publishing, and forever transform the act of reading.
Using the motto “living books that define the future of publishing”, his company has released six apps so far, each of which has been featured as an “App of the Week” on the App Store. http://touchpress.com/titles/
