soundbook / eReader with background sound

soundbook

The Soundbook is a new medium, which allows the reader not only to read stories, but to listen to them at the same time.
This means, that there will be background sounds, atmospheres or music attached to the text of the story. For example, the sound of a walking person on pavement, a car driving by or the atmosphere of a train station. The visual imagination of the story should be supported with the help of fine composed sound fitting exactly to the story. The system works with eyetracking and a special software, which allows a seamless sound atmosphere to go along with the text read.
