Interactive iGingerbread House by John Boucard

Great interactive gingerbread holiday project from John Boucard:

For Christmas, I wanted to create something interactive and fun to use.  Let’s call it the “iGingerbread House”! I have been working on something that I call the “Storybox” for sometime now.

I always thought it would be cool to tell a story to a small machine and uniquely activate recorded content at specific times with specific craft items. These specific times could be at holidays or celebrations with craft based items that were fun to decorate and make.  

I also thought it would be innovative to remotely activate content on an ipad app so that I could bring to life content that was associated with the machine.

I choose Google’s superior Santa Tracker, youtube content for 3 hours of holiday music, Magic Santa, and Apple’s Photostream as content for the ipad to activate based on how I physically interacted with the Gingerbread house.
