Augmented Narrative: Assisting the Reader with Sound

Susana Sanchez Perez, Naohito Okude, Kai Kunze

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Augmented Narrative is literature that assists readers by augmenting the narrative text with sound effects. The assistance comes when the reader is not being engaged into the storyline, using smart glasses as a biofeedback that measure levels of engagement through the temperature of the nose. The concept emerges from literary theory, translated into cognitive and computational terms, and put into a framework of cognitive ecology to design literature that provides with an embodied experience of the storyworld.
