Organization: University of Tokyo Authors: Hiroki Yamada, Michitaka Hirose Abstract: The authors propose Tiny Dreamy Stories, an interactive and augmented reality picture book system, which consists of a paper book with very thin IC tags embedded in each page and an RFID antenna. This system uses a traditional paper book as an interface and realizes natural interface that keeps the affordance of traditional book and thus smoothly prompts users to experience its contents by just flipping pages in the same way as they read an ordinary book. Another feature of the system is that users can change the storyline as they like. The system is designed just as like a bookbinder so that users can easily shuffle pages and make several patterns of stories. Furthermore, users can change the sceneries of stories by changing some part of the texts of the book. Change of scenery by adding or removing some special words in the book causes various events in the real world. By combination of shuffling pages and changing the texts, the user can change the world in the picture book variously.
