Kinetic Stories is a series of storybooks that mix traditional storytelling with the latest developments in motion tracking and speech recognition technology. Through this unique combination, a Kinetic Story allows any child (or playful adult) to literally step into the role of their favorite storybook character. The first storybook has been created as a functional, play-tested prototype and three more original stories are currently being planned by Delicode. In addition, the company is talking to various publishers about possible collaboration on existing IP.

Important: Please take note that Kinetic Stories was renamed in March 2013 from its original name “Kinected Stories”.
