This lecture explores a revolutionary Reading Machine invented by the American avant-garde poet Bob Brown. Developing Brown’s vision for a 1930s e-reader, Dr White and John Twycross have developed an Augmented Reality version where users can manipulate texts in real time.

This event is occurring as part of Ashmolean After Hours.
