Technology has opened up doors to a slew of possibilities when it comes to re-imagining everyday objects; take the Dimi Storybook, for example. It is a digital book that encourages interaction between it and the reader. Although it can be used by both adults and children, it is definitely targeted toward the latter with the former being there to help out.

Created by industrial designer Siri Johansson, winner of the Red Dot award for product design in 2010, the Dimi Storybook allows the reader to change the story as they see fit through different illustrations, texts and sound. This interaction between the user and the Dimi Storybook encourages the development of creative skills. It will also encourage children to embrace reading over other activities like video games.
