Describe "The Kindle" Project

Where would you begin if you had to describe a Kindle to Charles Dickens?

Rachel Walsh, an Illustration Student, had to do just that for one of her classes at Cardiff School of Art and Design.

She was asked to explain something modern/internet based to someone who lived and died before 1900. 
This is what she came up with.

“I made the book start to finish over five days, and it took about 35 hours to make I reckon. It was pretty painstaking cutting out all the gaps in the book itself, and making the books to go inside. They’re all bound like actual books, so as I waited for them to glue and dry I would design the covers for them".

"All the covers are copies of real book covers. They include many of Dickens’s novels, his favorite childhood books, and some of my own.”

If you had to do her assignment and explain a modern piece of technology to someone who lived and died before 1900, who would you pick?

and how would you explain it?
