Interactive storytelling… in a slightly different way

Well, now there is a saviour for all the pople who can’t make it home in time for their kids bedtime.

Microsoft and literary agents Chorion have teamed up to create “an online interactive storytelling application on Windows Live Messenger” as reported by C21 Media.

It’s basically storybooks that the kids can play around with, touch the pictures etc, while their parents read the book to them over the Internet. There is also, naturally, a live cam feed so parent and child can see each other.

Dear me.

Next up, the virtual hug, and a easily programmed bot that tells your chidlren you really really love them. If it’s not programmed in Vista of course, then it will get stuck and ask you for permission to continue.
