With the advancement of the Internet and new technologies, books can see their integrity in jeopardy. In recent years we have seen how the digital model of this industry advances, adapting to the reading devices that are being presented. Now, from the hand of MIT students, we have an interactive book capable of introducing us even more to reading.
Under the name of Sensory Fiction (sensory fiction) is a project in which four MIT students are working: Felix Heibeck, Alexis Hope, Julie Legault and Sophia Brueckner, who presented this product in a multimedia course that uses science fiction to inspire to the technology of the future.
In order to enjoy this “interactive reading” you have to put on a kind of vest, which is capable of making you feel sensations similar to those of the characters. To achieve this, it uses temperature, vibration, lighting or music, producing the reader a physical response to what is happening in the narrative.
