Somatic Digital Announces Significant Purchase Order

A significant purchase order is received for print and digital convergent technology solution

CINCINNATI, March 13 -- Somatic Digital announced today it received a significant purchase order to launch the first rollout of its TouchBook(TM) platforms. The platforms will be custom branded and bundled with five interdisciplinary content booklets and aligned digital content. The bundle will also contain an opt-in content subscription and online tutoring service. The product is targeted to all early elementary students, including those with special needs. The publisher's anticipated launch is in early 2008.

The TouchBook(TM) platform enables the reader of normally printed materials to touch the pages and retrieve linked digital content or launch communication applications on a computer.

Jason E. Barkeloo, the President of Somatic Digital states, "With this order the publisher will provide their branded inclusive learning experience for early elementary students. Our technology will also enable the publisher to generate recurring revenues through the delivery of services and future content subscriptions."

The TouchBook(TM) platform is embedded with the Touch User Interface (TUI) technology. Properly designed content materials using the TUI should meet the requirements outlined in the National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard (NIMAS), the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEIA), No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, and Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
