is a "Hypertext Authoring Tablet" featuring hardware design by Yoshitoshi ABe
. For CES the company behind the tablet, Ubiquitous Entertainment
, created a series of shorts
directed by Evangelion
veteran Shinji Higuchi
. Some more details about the tablet can be found here
and on the official Facebook page
. Current details about the UI suggest it takes inspiration from Hypercard and Alan Kay's Dynabook
Physically the device is unusual for a tablet in that it has a handle that can be used as a stand as well as an included smart pen. A lengthy article
(Japanese-only) has more pictures as well as a video
of the user interface in action; handwriting recognition is used to find a picture of the moon and bring it on to the main screen.
The "enchant" part of the name comes from Ubiquitous Entertainment's EnchantJS
library for making HTML5 games.
