StoryBeads are modular, wearable computer necklaces made of tiny computer ‘beads’ capable oÍ storing or displaying images. Beads communicate by infrared light, allowing the trade of digital images by beaming from bead to bead or by trade of a physical bead containing images. StoryBeads encourages users to build and share stories of images, text and sound. The beads are catalysts for oral storytelling, containers for collecting personal stories and connections to distributed story worlds.
