The newest version of the Reading Glove has recently been deployed in a set of user studies.  This version is augmented with a tabletop display that helps guide the user through the story.  An intelligent reasoning engine generates recommendations based on the reader’s path through the objects, helping them out by filling in holes or pushing them to the next stage of the story.  Via the user studies, we are investigating questions of adaptivity and the perception of artificial intelligence within an entertainment experience.

We have been running user studies with the system at SFU-Surrey and are about to launch a new round at the Great Northern Way campus. Many thanks to our great participants at both schools for helping us complete this research!

We have also produced a new video for the new version, which is viewable on YouTube:
