We discussed eagerly of the potential concepts of the bus 2012. From the beginning the central things in our joint venture have been for example
- books, reading and the new media
- producing joyful experiences to children
- learning and doing together
- producing things of your own
- to reach all children to tell the different possibilities the library can offer
The possibilities of arranging events in co-operation with schools and universities and people with all kinds of specialists are numerous.
We decided to proceed developing the concept, the media tools and the contents by concentrating on 4 examples which are called

Singing Fingers – by Jay Silver
I have worked with Jay before and he has developed this application, which is really cool! I could almost imagine a huge multi-touch screen or wall where children can collaboratively paint and create music and have fun!
Singing Fingers lets you fingerpaint with sound. Just touch the screen while you make a sound, and colorful paint appears. Touch the paint to play back the sound again!
