Reactable

I was doing some music searching while working on my novel and came across a new music system called reactable. I'm completely intrigued by it because of it's interactivity.

It is an electronic musical instrument where you can explore music  in an engaging way. My first thought, seems almost like playing a video game except, there's so much more going on where you interact with various objects to create the different sounds.


I can see this expanding on so many other levels like, for children playing music and especially children with special needs. Maybe some kind of educational interactive table could incorporate learning in such a hands on way that is also visual using 3D objects instead of being limited to a 2D screen.

Rumors about the shifters roaming at night, deep in the dark forest of Grimwood, were spreading like wildfire. When they gather in groups, their eyes ignite like blazing red spheres lurking out from the shadows. No one knows what the shifters do in their gatherings but many believe they are in search for a new victim. Children, like Hansel and Gretel, have mysteriously turned up missing.
Something strange was happening in Northhaven and everyone was becoming paranoid. Red’s parents, in particular, began to barricade all the windows and doors. Her father purchased special candles, made from dragon whale wax, lighting them all around the cottage. He believed it would help mask their scent to prevent the shifters from tracking them.
