Illume: Storybook App
Reading to a child is very important in their development, and experts say that reading aloud should start at birth. Often children want to hear the same stories over and over because they enjoy the characters in them, but it can be very tiring for parents to read the same stories every night. Illume allows parents to read new stories every night with familiar characters the children love.
Illume generates a story for parents to read to their child. The user can pick locations, characters, and objects that will integrate into their custom story. Illume will also generate imagery to go along with the story, emulating children’s books. Users can even add their own characters, objects, and backgrounds as well as draw their own images to go along with it.
Illume promotes creativity and gets children excited about reading by allowing them to take part in the creation of the stories. The app can also help introduce children to family and different types of people.
Illume also includes a marketplace where users can expand their storybooks with art from well-known illustrators or their favorite characters.
