The keepers of the Electric Bookshop are creating a publishing time-machine. It will provide unexpected and immersive experiences for intrepid book readers, using a combination of human interaction and artificial intelligence to create custom 'books' that they can take away.
Come along and listen to how old and new media, electronics, programming and traditional craft will enable the machine to be an anachronistic mishmash of time periods from literature, printing and publishing. It's the best open source bedtime story ever.
