  • Story The Story Box

    You're telling your kid's favorite story, the one they always ask for, but every so often you hold a button on your phone. This indicates that what you're saying right now is a keyword: perhaps the last word on a picture-book’s page, or an interesting noun.

    Afterwards, you link each recorded keyword to an image, or an illustration from the book.

    Not much later, sitting in the car, or on a bus, you're telling the story again while your child holds the phone. As you say each keyword your phone displays the related image, following the story as you say it.

    The next time you tell the story, you prompt your kid to provide the keyword themselves; by holding a button, you record their voice, and now they can trigger the illustrations themselves.

    As you drive the car, or carry on a conversation, your child tells the story, prompting pictures and learning vocabulary.

    “The night Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind”

    “and another”

    “his mother called him “WILD THING!” and Max said “I’LL EAT YOU UP!” so he was sent to bed without eating anything.”

    Tech– While storytelling, users create ‘voiceprints’ of story keywords – Keywords are associated with one image and any number of voiceprints – When a keyword is heard, Story Box displays the associated image, as long as doing so will display images in the correct order – The order of images within a story may be fixed or flexible – When the story is fixed, the Story Box is a portable picture-book library – When the story is flexible, every telling is a different illustrated tale.
