Douglas Adams' Wise Words Predicting eBooks Brought To Life (VIDEO)

May 25 is Towel Day, and as any nerd worth his salt will tell you, that's the day everyone remembers the wonderful man that was Douglas Adams: the man behind The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, Dirk Gently and The Meaning Of Liff.

This year's Towel Day was a very special one, as Adams' collected Hitchhicker's novels - "a trilogy in five parts" - were formally released to download on eReaders.

What makes this occurrence so especially special is that to tie in with May 25, the books' publishers commissioned fans to create a video to accompany an audio recording of Douglas Adams back in 1993 where he predicted - you guessed it - the arrival of the eReader.

The winner of the competition was Vimeo user Gareth Evans, and it's his effort we've got for you above - and when you're done with that, take a look 10 of our favouite Douglas Adams quotes below.
