Paper Circuitry and Projection Mapping: An Interactive Textbook Approach to Veterinary Education Conference Paper uri icon


  • © 2018 Copyright is held by the owner/author(s). We present an interactive book platform that was initially developed for veterinary students. This platform provides a simple tangible book interface that users can touch, flip through pages, and read the content. Meanwhile, they experience a dynamic content display system using a projector. In this paper, we present an interactive book which specifically covers Cattle (Bovine) laminitis, a painful and widely prevalent disease in cattle. Our project aims to support students' understanding of the multi-faceted nature of bovine laminitis, through the use of an interactive book interface. We implemented the unique approach of using paper circuitry to create the electrical pathway from an actual book to the computer. Book pages with embedded paper circuitry become an interactive surface, that visualizes a progression of bovine laminitis through its stages of disease. Future development of the work will include developing content from other disciplines for the same platform.
