Wearable Books?

Technology keeps marching forward. Some ideas take hold and blossom, while others seem to never grab the public.

A new project out of MIT called Sensory Fiction is attempting to relay characters’ emotions in a book through networked sensors and actuators worn by the reader. It appears to be a little like a 4D movie for books (not just visual, but including sensory elements).

Watch this video to learn more about this interesting idea.

Then, tell me what you think. Do you think this is something that will catch on? Will there be “wearable books” in the future?
