I saw some very cool features in a presentation today at the Internet
Archive. The presentation was by Eitenne Mineur, as part o the "Books
in Browsers 13" event.

They are using paper and other simple objects that have kind of
conductive patterns to create story platforms, but with interactivity.
Start with a story screen, place a paper cutout of one of the
characters, and the story comes to life. Place a second character, and
the scene changes.

All very interesting ideas for us to use on the XO-4 Touch, although
the XO4 does not use capacitance, but the idea is very cool.
