Concept

"MÜ is a multimedia installationfeaturing children fairy tales, intended for infant schools. The educational purpose of MÜ is the early learning of hearing, musical and creation, through activities that can be played alone or in group."

The goal of the different activities is to improve sociability, autonomy and imagination. Moreover, the activities are designed to prepare children tobasic skills : reading, writing, oral expression ...

MÜ is an installation with a tabletop tangible multi-touch interface. The table contains a square screen, with which one can interact either with fingers or with specific tangible objects. The application reacts with animated images and sounds.

The table is connected to Internet to send children’s works on a dedicated website available for both teachers and parents. The goal is to create a new link between school and home.

MÜ is therefore both a new educational tool for teachers and a new creative expression tool for children.
