"It's straight out of the pages of science fiction: a 'wearable' book, which uses temperature controls and lighting to mimic the experiences of a story's protagonist, has been dreamed up by academics at MIT.

The book, explain the researchers, senses the page a reader is on, and changes ambient lighting and vibrations to 'match the mood'. A series of straps form a vest which contains a 'heartbeat and shiver simulator', a body compression system, temperature controls and sound."
