Developing the interest of kids in studies is one of the difficult tasks not only for the parents but also for the teachers. Developed as a school project at the Ecole des Gobelins in Paris, the “MU” is a multimedia installation that includes fairy tales to attract children toward learning. Intended for kids up to 6 years, the installation features a square tabletop multi-touch display to be shared by four students. Using a diffused illumination display and RFID enabled objects, the project lets the kids interact directly with the system for better understanding and identification of the characters. In addition, the MU using latest touch-sensitive technology also helps the kids enhance their basic skills of reading and writing. Check out the video after the jump.
