I recently received an e-mail from Safangelo Sadeghpour who recently launched a Kickstarter project with a very interesting goal. The project’s main focus is creating a publishing system that combines the tactile feel and power of a printed color book (illustrated with high quality photography) with an audio track that is played through a website URL or via a phone number. It may not be a completely new idea (many children’s books have for years come with audio tapes, CD’s etc.), but with the advent of smartphones, I think it is a new and interesting approach, and I hope he achieves his goal of raising $6,000.
…and below you can see a sample of how the final book and audio will look and sound:
