iPaper - Interactive Paper Framework for Paper-Digital Integration

iPaper is a platform for interactive paper applications that has been realised as an extension of the iServer cross-media link server. The iPaper framework supports the rapid prototyping, development and deployment of interactive paper applications. Active areas can be defined on paper and linked to various forms of digital media and services. By providing an extensive library of active components, users can rapidly develop a wide range of applications without having to do much programming.

Since iPaper is based on the general cross-media iServer platform, active areas can be linked to and from a wide range of physical and digital media including web pages, images, video, flash animations, databases and RFID tags as well as application programs. The iPaper framework has been in use in the two European Paper++, and PaperWorks projects.
