New! Vending Machines That Dispense Short Stories in France

New! Vending Machines That Dispense Short Stories in France | Transmedia Seattle | Scoop.it
Eight new vending machines have popped up in the public spaces of Grenoble, France. The vending machines sit near the Alpine city’s town hall, the tourist office, and the libraries, but Grenoble hasn’t suddenly developed a taste for Lay’s potato chips and Snickers bars—these vending machines dispense short stories.

Looking forward to this making it over here to the US soon. Don't you wish we had it now? Thanks to storyteller Connie Reagan Blake for sharing about this in her recent newsletter.

Frank Rose:  "When JWT Intelligence announced its "10 Trends for 2014 and Beyond" recently, trend #1 was "immersive experiences." Certainly you can feel this in New York: From Punchdrunk's Sleep No More (now running for nearly three years) to MoMA's Rain Room to Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirrored Room, people are willing to pay top dollar or line up for hours to experience something all-encompassing and beyond the ordinary. But why?"

In my view, the term "experience economy" is morphing into the "immersive"  economy - and you will see the rise of more "immersive technology" to facilitate.  Emergence has become Immersive.
