Bear Abouts is a research project into storytelling and tangible media. We have developed a digital and physical storytelling platform for children that gives kids the power to create and influence stories through making. We built a platform for Android devices in Unity 3D that uses touch points to connect with a package of physical components. It combines paper pages with animations and events on screen to make tactile storytelling experiences for children.
