Team Inksmith is working on a semester long project at Carnegie Mellon University’s Entertainment Technology Center (ETC) with Pixure Book Publishing to investigate the best ways to utilize mobile touchscreen devices for developing storybook applications for kids.

The team’s efforts will be largely exploratory, rapidly iterating to create multiple storybook prototypes from completely different manuscripts over the semester. Through multiple prototypes, Inksmith hopes to observe recurring interactions that children find engaging and intuitive, documenting such interactions as favorable for future storybook apps to include to heighten a child’s interest and attention.
