Video of the Companion Novel now online

There is now a video available online demonstrating the Companion Novel, one of the prototypes I have been working on as part of the meSch project. The Companion Novel is a book-like device that allows visitors of an outdoor heritage to select a theme and then receive personalised information at specific points of interest. When the book detects a point of interest is nearby a sound is played to attract the attention. When the visitor is closer a story is played. The loudspeakers are lodged in purpose-made encases that fit with the environment.

You can watch the video on the meSch website.
