Tangible and Accessible Audio Book (2017)

Audio books have significantly gained in popularity in recent years driven by online distribution. However, this requires the users to possess and to be able to operate a smartphone or similiar computer. In the below video, I showcase a prototype for a tangible audio book I created that automatically plays the audio from USB when it is opened. Different audio books can be played from different USB sticks. Hence, this device can be used drawing on a book metaphor only and does not demand any further interactions. When the book is closed and reopened again, it continues at the last position.
