HP Magic Words

HP made the first book written by people who've never written before.

Think about a country that has more than 13 million illiterate people. How many stories go unwritten and how many memories would be lost?

HP developed an innovation using Google Speech API that captures stories through speech, transforms it into text and prints it in real time.
And with that, we hit the road.

We started out looking for stories all across the country, from the Amazon rainforest on the border with the state of Rondonia to villages in the backlands of the Northeast of the Brazil, all the way to the big cities São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. And, one by one, the stories were recorded via voice command and printed in real time. Those pages were turned into the first book written by people who’ve never written before, with 30 fantastic and touching memories and photos.

All of that became a documentary showing amazing places and people that have one thing in common: stories, memories, and ideas that would all pass into oblivion. But not anymore.

The website reunites the app/tool, the documentary and the book in a single responsive platform.
