Qwiki - reading the news

Represent text news in audio and visual format
There is also an iPad app for this site.
Information text is machine read, and accompanied by images and video clips that illustrate the information being presented.

"We are the first to turn information into an experience. We believe that just because data is stored by machines doesn't mean it should be presented as a machine-readable list. Think of asking your favorite teacher about Leonardo Da Vinci, or your most well-traveled friend about Buenos Aires: this is the experience Qwiki will eventually deliver. This is our goal at Qwiki – to advance information technology to the point it acts human."
