  21. 21. Tangible Memories project: http://tangible-memories.com • An app that enables residents to work with families and care staff to create their own interactive life history books or group history books. Stories are recorded into the book and played back by simply scanning pages of the book. • An interactive rocking chair that enables residents to listen to audio including sounds of nature, poems and favourite music. • A tactile patchwork cushion which can be programmed to play favourite music or audio stories – personalized for individual residents, using printed images and visual recognition software. • A ‘pick up to play’ music app, that makes listening to a memory filled music playlist as simple as picking up the phone. • The use of Virtual Reality headsets that can transport residents to local landmarks and places they are no longer able to visit.
  22. 22. Physical Charts, a project by Microsoft Research Cambridge for the Tenison Road community project that set out to encourage civic engagement with locally generated data, such as surveys on traffic and air quality. The result is a mechanical pie chart made from slices of sheet plastic attached to a central motor and bar chart constructed from motorised measuring tapes, both of which animate to display real-time data. They are now on display in a shop window in Cambridge. http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/cambridge/projects/physicalcharts/
