PAPERCUT is an experimental enhanced reading experience for iPad. It includes three short stories by world famous authors Richard Beard, Nadifa Mohamed and Laura Dockrill. It transforms simple prose into an interactive, multi-sensory reading experience, automatically triggering relevant video, animation, image sequences and sound content, enhancing the narrative. The reader can simply and elegantly scroll through a truly interactive experience with seamless swipes.
ustwo™, in collaboration with Shortfire Press, is making available works from three leading British authors - novelist and non-fiction writer Richard Beard's 'James Joyce, EFL Teacher', award winning Nadifa Mohamed's 'Summer in the City' and poet and illustrator Laura Dockrill's Topple.
"PAPERCUT is an innovative and interactive way to tell stories. For writers it's the first glimpse of how writing skills and technology can come together to create a new art-form," commented novelist, non-fiction writer and Director of the National Academy of Writing in London, Richard Beard. "I loved working on my story with ustwo™. We've produced a story like no other I've ever written."
Once you have selected a story to read from the three available, scroll through the text using the scrollbar on the right hand side of the screen, or if you prefer you can simply move the text with your fingertips.
