The Reading Lantern

interactive object
A 2600-year-old Chinese folktale is sent into the cloud of speech detection algorithms while a parent reads an illustrated book to their child. The Reading Lantern recognises the words as they are read out loud, animating its colours to reveal the characters and landscape of each page — creating a special atmosphere to accompany the magical moment of bedtime stories.

The reading lantern was awarded the Silver Prize of Hochparterre Magazine in 2019 and was exhibited at Design Days in Geneva, Kikk Festival in Namur, MUDAC in Lausanne.
