Story Machine Captures Sound, Images

July 23, 2007 - When it comes to writing, the pen and paper can take storytelling only so far.

Now a new technology allows kids - big and small - to embed sound into traditional drawings and create an interactive story-game. The Jabberstamp, invented by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is not only just fun to play with, it can also allow children to capture and share intricate ideas before they have mastered the skill of writing narratives.

We can help them learn new things that are really complex by giving them new toys, said Hayes Raffle, a Ph.D. candidate and research assistant. Raffle developed the device with fellow Ph.D. candidate Cati Vaucelle and Cornell University researcher Ruibing Wang.
