Our project is called Micrio: a solution for telling interactive stories with ultra resolution images or video. Publishers can create interactive stories on the platform and incorporate them in their website.
As the saying goes: "A picture can say more than a 1000 words", so we think it is best you experience Micrio for yourself. A really great example of what can be achieved with Micrio is this one: Explore The Garden of Earthly Delights by Jheronimus Bosch.
Micrio is a venture of software company Q42 in the Netherlands. The team for this project consists of three members: Anton (developer), Roelf-Jan (developer) and Jeroen (project manager).
Micrio's business model currently is subscription driven. We investigated how we could renew the business model for Micrio with Web Monetization. Want to know more?
- The updated business model with Web Monetization
- A video demo how Web Monetization could work for Micrio when the API is changed a bit
There are still some challenges to solve before Web Monetization could work for Micrio. We tried out a possible API spec change, although this also has side effects (see discussion below the post).
Ideas are welcome here!
