'Wearable' book allows reader to feel emotions of characters

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's insight:

MIT 'wearable' book redefines multisensory media.  Interesting that article doesn't mention how they established the psychology - defining emotions, the physiological reaction of the emotions (or even how they know where the reader is on the page--maybe it's one emotion per page) but it's a stunning peek into the potential of combining technology with storytelling.  It's also another example of the importance of psychology as technology allows us to augment personal experience.  (Might even raise interesting ethical issues of impact of emotional response on different individuals.  Potential as therapeutic device to reset positive emotions.  Would it work in reverse, too?)

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's insight:

Is Memloom all that different from other digital storytelling tools?  I am hoping for a iPhone version where stories can be compiled on the fly, reflective of the chaos of real life.

Memloon seems an easy tool for building stories for our photos. Could it will be used by brands? Maybe, I guess.
