Inspired by reel-to-reel tape machines, microfilm, cine-film projectors and arcade games, Chronotape is a tangible timeline for family history research designed by Peter Bennett and developed as part of the PATINA project, within the Bristol Interaction & Graphics group. The device includes a number of different functions: ADD PERSON: place a person icon on the tape to mark an event (birth, death, marriage etc), WRITE NOTE: write directly onto the chronotape using pen/pencil, TYPE NOTE: type a note onto the tape, and PHOTO: snap a photo note of the your research materials or old photos.
