This project by Studio Hyte explores the physical book in relation to digital information. It questions the possibilities of the future book and if the role of the reader will develop into that of a knowledge curator, like it has done with the internet. The group used Electric Paint to create sensors on the paper pages, connected to the Touch Board which triggered actions on the computer.

Watch this video of the book pages being turned. By interacting with the sensors on the paper pages, digital pages open and close.

Pages from the printed book, which uses Electric Paint as sensors for the Touch Board.
