Booktrack - Enhancing The Book Reading Experience
There has not been much evolution on book reading (other than the move to digital) but that is about to change with technologies like Booktrack. So what is Booktrack? Well it's software that allows playback of soundtracks and sound effects when reading books on digital devices.
I can see Booktrack being useful to "set the mood" and enhance the reading atmosphere. In a way it could be like adding a bit of a "movie feel" to a book. (which would be very weird and interesting at the same time).
One thing that I'm sure Booktrack has kept in mind is that their technology needs to create the ambiance without being too distracting. There are manual adjustments like reading speeds, and audio levels for ambient, sound effects, and music.
The digital book reading realm has gotten a bit more interesting.
What I would like:
The one thing I have always wanted is Audible audio books and Kindle books working together in sync. You can listen to the audio book and the Kindle app stays along with the audio. Maybe I decide to stop reading with the Kindle app and now I want to resume by listening on the audio book with my mp3 player. Once done with the audiobook and I want to go back to the Kindle the app knows where I left of. I would totally pay for "bundled" books.
