Nokia Storyplay - book with video for distance education

Friday, October 30, 2009

The company Nokia, in collaboration with children's program "Sesame Street" has developed a system Storyplay. This is a hybrid of paper books, videoconferencing and video content from Sesame Street. Storyplay created to communicate at a distance, especially between children and grandparents, if they live far from each other and rarely seen. That is, a grandparent will be able to read your child a book, and it is one of the most important ways of interaction between generations, even if is far away.

Storyplay enclosed in a wooden case, he has two displays, one of which is shown by Elmo from "Sesame Street" and the other - users who communicate among themselves, for example, a grandmother and a child. Inside the case is also provided for a paper book, which can be changed. In addition, there are those needed for videoconferencing components such as camera, microphone and speaker. It is not clear when Nokia will release a commercial version of the device, although the idea is very interesting. 11
