Sensory Fiction, the book which was plugged in

After hearing and smelling, books keep dropping physical barriers and surprising us!

Sensory Fiction is a unique book titled “The Girl Who Was Plugged In”, a science-fiction novelette written by James Tiptree (a woman, as her pen name tries to hide)… In 1973!

It resembles any book but its size and thickness are strange: In fact, this book allows to experience the emotions of its main character with a connected jacket to wear before starting the reading session!

A 1973’s story in a book from the future!

The concept is still at the prototype stage but the technologies used are already advanced! The MIT Media Lab, which developed and delivered a physical form to the whole idea, used nearly 150 programmable LEDs to illuminate the cover of the book, allowing colors to change the atmosphere all around you while the jacket, equipped with a heating device (with the help of a Peltier junction), vibrating plates and a system of compression by airbags, will make you experience with the heroine the power of love and despair, the sensation of freedom and that of confinement…

By playing on heat transmission, heart rate and the atmosphere of the room, Sensory Fiction transports you beyond words and, if it does not replace your imagination (fortunately!), it allows you to be immersed body and soul in the narrative!

We are excited to know if new stories will be adapted to the concept!

Interview: Talking about literature with Nadia!

It has been a while since the last interview right ?
So, in order to give this year a good start, we are taking back our good habits and we open 2018 with Nadia, passionate about literature and author of the blog  Le Style de ma Plume (in French)!



Introduce yourself in a few lines : You, your passions, your projects…
First of all, thank you to the BlookUp Team for your trust.
I’m Nadia from the blog “Le Style de ma Plume“. Mom of 2 little angels, blogger, administrative employee, i love this exciting rhythm of life: Diversify my occupations while keeping priorities in sight.

Could you explain to our readers what your blog is about ?
Through my blog, I wish, to share my readings in an original way, without any pretention.

In my opinion, reading is a journey of senses. So, what is more natural than sending a postcard from my current destination to my readers…

I also share interviews that I make myself, and you will discover articles as well.

I wrote for Webzines et paper magazine (Alhy magazine, Foulexpress, On behalf of the graphic designer “graphidine”…)


So far, what moment of your blogger’s life was the most significant ?
The launch ! When I went from development to achievement by buying the domain name. Then by clicking on

From there, I only remember lots of beautiful encounters… Projects…

Did your passion for books and writing have a decisive influence on the idea to turn your blog into a book ?
Yes, quite… This was only logical to me. Turn my blog into a book, what an ingenious idea!

How did you hear about BlookUp ?
I spotted the concept a few months ago on the internet.
I was curious about testing it and share my experience, so I contacted you.


What are the positive elements about the platform ?
The rapidity and the intuitiveness of the platform. Overall, the platform is open to anyone, with or without computing knowledge.

What are the areas for improvement ?
For me, and as previously exposed on my blog, it was the heterogeneous quality of the photos.

Nevertheless, you explained that from now, an alert will be put in place in order to have the possibility to delete or modify the picture when one is likely to be improved.


What do you think of the final result and what are the feedback of your surroundings?
Receiving my blog in book was a real pleasure.

I love books… The paper… but also blogging… BlookUp is a beautiful alliance between both worlds.

Would you recommend BlookUp ?
It is a huge and sincere YES!


A big thank to Nadia for agreeing to answer our questions, and thanks again to her for her article about us on her blog!

The book of Facebook for Community Managers

As a Social Media Manager or Community Manager, Facebook is probably your main communication tool.

The task of animating it is yours, but have you ever taken a look back on everything you’ve accomplished? Do you have a written record of  all the hard work generated throughout the year, the number of publications, reactions, shares, comments? Do you possess a decision support toolproof of the impact of your work?

BlookUp has the ideal solution for you: The book of your Facebook page!

You embody the image of your business by posting diverse and engaging content, organizing events, contests, and responding to comments with strong punchlines and gifs.

This daily work is ceaseless and constantly renewing itself, and as each publication is chasing another, it is sometimes difficult to keep track of each action conducted online.

The Facebook book is the paper support that will allow you to:

  • Regularly report on the activity of your page(s), month by month;
  • Discuss with your teams and superiors the editorial line, how to work on visuals, how to write publications
  • Take stock of the actions and publications that worked, the commitment and feedback from your community through the accurate transcription of comments and the number of reactions to it;
  • Valuing your work to your managers!


Promote your business in a unique way

By immortalizing the engagement of your fans, your best events or marketing operations and have a physical copy of your production, you will also surprise your employees, customers or partners.
