We don’t want to sound too geeked or anything, but you’ve got to see this video from Disney!
They’ve just released some ground breaking ideas for cross-media paper-based books that are self-charging and can run simple animations, LED lights, mechanical motion . . . even connect and control external devices wirelessly.
This is one of those moments where the possibilities in new technology are massive. No matter what industry you’re in, I bet you can come up with at least half a dozen ideas of how this could be used.
The merging of electronic technology, digital innovation and material engineering is fantastic. And it takes the idea of “published content” to the next level. Instead of deciding what platform to publish the content on, the content itself becomes the platform. Publishing has just taken a huge leap forward.
Fascinating stuff, and worth the 4-minute investment, I promise. After you watch the video, drop us a comment and let us know how you can see this being used in your world.
