RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The overall research of WaWa Story focuses on the emotional communication between preschool children and their parents. Asian parents and children communicate with smart devices. Featuring traditional storytelling using a puppet, the product presents the expressions and story scenes with an existing smart device, which enhances its appeal to children and reduces the pressure on parents to read and communicate. An oral identification system is also added to allow parents to present the corresponding picture through the guidance of the keyword.

CHALLENGE:
The biggest difficulty is the combination of smart devices and traditional puppets. The product hopes that preschool children can truly touch a traditional and figurative puppet instead of a plastic robot, so the puppet’s emotions are conveyed through its eyes and voices. An oral identification system is also added to the scenes presented on the tablet, which allows storytellers to present the corresponding picture through the guidance of the keyword.

PROFILE:
Where We Started In the early 1970s, Taiwan faced crucial challenges arising from global energy crisis and trade protectionism implemented by industrial countries.

It has contributed to the pioneer research and development in information and communication technology, the deepening and broadening of information applications, the training and education of talents in this field and the participation in building infrastructure for national information technology. III’s achievements have been widely recognized. In recent years, following the rapid changes in the global environment, III has modified its objectives and missions as follows: Objectives To increase innovative applications of ICT technology and to facilitate the development of digital economy.
