Augmented Reality Book

Posted by
Augmented reality could provide an interesting point of crossover between the e-book and the traditional printed work where the two exist in a symbiotic relationship. Or is this just another version of the "enhanced" book with a cd in the back that no one ever uses?

INKE Panel at Digital Humanities 2011

Posted by
INKE researchers from the Interface Design team Geoffrey Rockwell, Stan Ruecker, Mihaela Ilovan, and Daniel Sondheim presented a panel at Digital Humanities 2011: Big Tent Digital Humanities at Stanford University. The panel was titled "The Interface to the Collection" and consisted of short papers discussing the interface across print/electronic corpora and presentations of new interfaces to corpora. Mihaela Ilovan presented an interesting animation of the evolution of the Perseus Project interface from its early HyperCard on CD-Rom days:

Rockwell and Ruecker were also involved in two workshops before the conference on Visualization for Literary History and Text Analysis with Voyeur. (You can see the script to the Voyeur one at DH2011 Voyeur Tools.)
