Dolltalk: a computational toy to enhance children's creativity
This paper presents a novel approach and interface for encouraging children to tell and act out original stories. "Dolltalk" is a toy that simulates speech recognition by capturing the gestures and speech of a child. The toy then plays back a child's pretend-play speech in altered voices representing the characters of the child's story. Dolltalk's tangible interface and ability to retell a child's story may enhance a child's creativity in narrative elaboration. Keywords Tangible interface, toy, children, performance, perspectivetaking, narrative elaboration, motion and speech detection
