In the past the “Choose your own Adventure” series of novels were popular with younger readers, due to the interesting twists and turns in the stories. In the spirit of these books, Jerry Belich has brought this concept into the 21st century with his “Choosatron”. This is an Arduino-controlled device which prints passages from CYOA books with a thermal printer, then offers the reader a choice which they select with a numeric keypad, at which point the story continues. Futhermore Jerry has published details on how to format other stories to suit the Choosatron, allowing more varied use. For a quick demonstration, check out the following video:
