Abstract

Interactive Storybook is based on J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Several 'magical' objects placed inside the book invites you to interact with it by waving them over a surface. This causes items related to the part of the story containing the object to appear on the display, including links where the reader can further watch related scenes related.The storybook was created using RFID tags and an RFID scanner. Tags are hidden inside story objects. The RFID scanner was wrapped in the same leather binding as the book cover. When the reader 'scans' the objects, the appropriate display appears
