PoetHero®: Better Reading Through Gaming

PoetHero, Be a Poet... GamePlaying from Carlos González Tardón on Vimeo.

Another show stopper from Carlos Gonzalez Tardon.

Based on GuitarHero and the countless Hero/Dance games that followed, PoetHero® is possibly the best way to read a poem!

What Gertrude Stein went to great lengths to accomplish, PoetHero® can do in just a few weeks of daily gameplay: PoetHero® is the ultimate tool for generating reader attentiveness!

Re-wiring for re-reading!
