Telescrapbook is a set of remote sticker-books that are wirelessly connected, and they are both educational and customizable. Telescrapbook presents I/O Stickers, adhesive sensors and actuators that children can use to create personalized remote communication interfaces. By attaching I/O Stickers to special greeting cards, children can invent ways to communicate with long-distance loved ones with personalized, connected messages. Children decorate these cards with their choice of craft materials, creatively expressing themselves while making a functioning interface. The low-bandwidth connections leave room for children to design not only the look and function, but also the signification of the connections.
