For technophiles and the gadget-crazy, the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is like a hedonistic retreat. Stacked to the rafters with the latest and greatest technological breakthroughs in consumer electronics, the show provides visitors with a small glimpse of the future. Surprisingly, in a year that boasts 3D televisions and user generated automobiles, what has been taking the world''s attention is little more than a thin sheet of foil.

The name of the game at the 2010 CES is e-readers, electronic devices that simulate books or magazines. Though similar inventions have been available for several years now, the third generation of e-readers is really turning heads.

Of particular interest is the Skiff Reader, an 11.5-inch sheet of flexible steel foil that boasts Wi-Fi 3G connectivity and downloadable newspaper, books and magazines that will be fully rendered in high definition.

The Skiff''s metal frame is durable enough to survive a fall without damaging screen clarity or texture despite being only a quarter of an inch thick.

The gadget will go on sale later this year, but avid readers and electronics enthusiasts alike may be waiting with baited breath.
