Penguin Young Readers Group Presents the “Storytime Hangout” App

“The app uses their computer’s webcam to place them in the story, then overlays masks of the characters on top, with the aim being for kids and parents to act out the story while reading it…The app relies on parents – obviously not children – having Google+ accounts. In December 2012, Google said that 500m people had created accounts, although 135m of those were actively using the social network, as opposed to merely having enabled it from other Google services like Gmail and YouTube.”
