Sensory Fiction: The Girl Who Was Plugged In

Published Nov 13, 2014

“Sensory Fiction” is a project by MIT academics Felix Heibeck, Alexis Hope and Julie Legault, exploring new ways of experiencing and creating stories.

The researchers have developed a wearable mechanism that combines networked sensors and actuators to create an immersive storytelling experience tailored to the reader.

“To explore this idea, we created a connected book and wearable. The ‘augmented’ book portrays the scenery and sets the mood, and the wearable allows the reader to experience the protagonist’s physiological emotions.

The book cover animates to reflect the book’s changing atmosphere, while certain passages trigger vibration patterns.

Our prototype story, ‘The Girl Who Was Plugged In’ by James Tiptree showcases an incredible range of settings and emotions. The main protagonist experiences both deep love and ultimate despair, the freedom of Barcelona sunshine and the captivity of a dark damp cellar.”
