Bird books with Sounds! (1 Viewer)


Hello all!

I am here looking for feedback from bird-lovers who are also book lovers!

I have developed a technology for traditional paper books that have printed touch-sensitive "buttons" on its pages. These buttons are printed with a special ink which allows the reader to simply touch on them for the book to produce a sound via a small speaker on the cover (or headphones).

I am thinking of beautifully illustrated paper books about birds, which would allow the reader to touch the illustration and listen to its birdsong coming from within the book.

Such a book looks, feels, smells and is made like regular books are, making technology invisible (no physical buttons, no wires, cables etc.).

1) Do you buy books about birds?
2) Would you like to be able to listen to the sounds a bird makes when reading such a book?
3) Does it add value to your reading experience?
4) Would you be willing to pay a higher price for such a sound-book based on this tech? If, yes how much more (%)?

Many, many thanks beforehand for your time! Your feedback is invaluable. I'm available to answer any questions you may have.
