Zapzap: Table Top Device Which Presents the Contents of The Book Vaguely to Support Browsing Books in the Bookstore
In this paper, we present the concept, prototype design and implementation of Zapzap, a table-top device that shows the rough contents of a book placed on it. Zapzap is expected to be deployed in bookstores to support customers browsing books. When the user places a book on the display, the system shows keywords, i.e., words often included in the book. When the user taps one of the displayed words, a sentence that includes the selected word is shown. Zapzap aims to present the atmosphere of a book without spoiling its story.
