An ode to reading, in technological form.
I really think you may be in the ‘10x product improvement’ range on reading…it’s actually on-the-money for people like me who want to read, should be reading, enjoy reading, but just struggle to do more than 10 minutes of it at a time. It's hard for me to fully express how immediately (first 5-10 minutes?) I experienced the peace of losing optionality with the Sol Reader on.
The Sol mobile app (iOS and Android) allows you to seamlessly manage your Sol Reader. Deliver your DRM-free books (.epubs), articles, and newsletters to your Reader. Access settings, accounts, and tech support, all in one place.
From the adjustable silicone nose bridge to the optical displays, the Sol Reader is designed to fit you comfortably, whether laying down or sitting upright. Weighing only 104g, the Reader wears more like sunglasses than a VR headset, no head strap necessary.
The Sol Reader optical modules mimic the experience of reading on paper: the page appears at a comfortable distance before you, using E Ink displays side-lit by warm white LEDs. Brightness is adjustable, and the pancake lenses are amenable for a wide adjustable diopter range, so most users have no need to wear contact lenses or glasses.
The matte black remote automatically pairs with the Sol Reader via Bluetooth, letting you advance the page, save bookmarks, or adjust the display settings. The ergonomic form factor is comfortable for as long as you want to read.
With a battery life of up to 25 hours, the Sol Reader will last long enough for you to (finally!) finish War and Peace before needing a charge, which takes only 2 hours via USB-C plug. How, you ask? For the first time in an e-reader, we have combined E Ink displays with an ultra-low power processor.
Protect your Sol Reader with our custom solid carry case with a synthetic leather finish.
