True Interactivity for Young Viewers of Virtual Broadcast Content via Intelligent Interfaces
TINY-IN is a two year EPSRC DTI LINK funded project that started in August 2002. Our overall research objective is to investigate how an interactive narrative engine could create coherent and engaging experiences by intelligently recombining content developed for broadcast. As a test case, we are using characters, scenarios and contexts based on the "Tiny Planets" 3D computer animation TV series produced by Pepper's Ghost Productions and shown on Children?s ITV. Through this approach we aim to develop new exciting types of interactive 'television' material that provide a richer experience for young children at a significantly lower production cost.
