A proof of concept project for Google: recreate a children's storybook using forward thinking technology that is both creative and commercially viable.
A special moment occurs when a child goes to bed and the light is turned off. The child's entire world changes. Often children are afraid of the dark and nightlights are left on to help them feel safe. How could we make this moment feel magical and not scary? Our storybook aims to hand control of this special time to the child and with unique magical properties focus bedtime into a fun and inspiring experience - one that allows dreams to spark little imaginations. Employing the traditional storybook concept we envision a complete immersive experience based on two separate but interconnected worlds - day and night.
L2N is a real storybook physical in everyway with a hardback cover and pages that turn, one that can be read to a child like any other book. A traditional storybook with characters and adventures, some that can be seen only during the day but more that appear only at night. The daytime narrative hints at and gives clues to what is to come when a child settles down to sleep.
Imagining this from a child’s viewpoint we step inside their world and change the entire bedtime reading experience - not simply adding a small element to the storybook but adding many elements to change the perspective that encompasses their world.
