Mobile Art Lab has stated that these kind of applications are not limited to children’s books, but could also be utilized in other types of media such as catalogs and brochures. Graphic novels and manga could easily integrate this technology as well, but the interactive potential makes this an ideal learning tool.
The software and book-like construct combination offers a child and parent the opportunity to read interactive stories or learn simple math lessons. It could also teach the children how to read and interact with technology at very young ages. That is one of the reasons why both technology developers and content creators should focus on child health and education, thus ensuring the child’s proper development.
The makers worked on the project under the slogan “Analog on the Digital Technology” since it combines digital value of iPhone and analogue advantage of books. This new approach will be able to be applied to brochures or catalogues for business usage, art books, picture books or as educational tools. The PhoneBook is not available yet and the company didn’t announce the release date of the PhoneBook. The concept shows a great potential and, unless better technologies emerge, it will most likely be in your homes soon. (JapanPulse)
