Featured Project: Flint, Interactive Talking Book

Flint is a concept for an interactive talking book that was created by Silvia, Kaia, Adam & Katie for their Digital Storytelling Coursework.  The project is (loosely!) based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Tinderbox.  The team produced a comprehensive range of concept materials to help visualise their project.   As well as their pitch video, you can see here an interactivity map, various concept designs and plans to include Braille to make the project more accessible.   They even managed to find an abandoned wild west town, right here in Edinburgh!

This work was created for Digital Storytelling, one of the year 3 modules on the Digital Media and Interaction Design course.  The module is run  by Dr. Tom Flint and Fiona Stewart.  Look out for more great work from our students soon.

Many thanks to the team for allowing us to share their work.

Blending spaces in New York


Our year 3 students Mat and Alison have been working with Dr. Tom Flint at Farmingdale College in New York State.  They’ve worked with students there to create an exhibition that blends art and technology with interesting spaces focussed around the  “Highline”.  Mat and Alison received funding from our mobility fund to enable them to travel and build on what they are learning at Edinburgh Napier.  Here they are demonstrating some Augmented Reality technology to the group. You can follow their progress on their blog and on Tom’s Twitter account – @tomflint

It’s world ocean day!

The perfect day to share this final year project by Alex Haining. It uses virtual reality to raise awareness of the conservation of coral.
