As contributors continue to liaise with our Principal Investigator, the essential work of building the magic bookmark for the book has begun.
In the lead up to Christmas, George Bairaktaris has designed and assembled the components to the first iteration of the bookmark, which is able to optically read a page and recognise the presence (or not) of markings.
In this video, George tests the sensors which send signals to a nearby device. Will it work?
The electronics are currently housed within a stitched, felt-like fabric which – in the final version – will include small icons or patches that act as buttons.
