Bedtime Story 2.0

With digital books, smartphones, and the highly anticipated iPad, the bedtime story could change forever. At the Tools of Change conference, Hillel Cooperman unveiled “A Story Before Bed,” a way to read a child a storybook via webcam videos.

In this exclusive GalleyCat video, Cooperman walks the viewer through his simple interface, allowing children to read along with a loved one–no matter where they are.

Here’s more about the innovative product: “The service lets parents and grandparents who can’t be there for bedtime record videos of themselves reading children’s books. The kids can watch the videos synchronized to the pages of the book right on screen anytime they like, as often as they like.”
