The dominant interaction paradigm in Interactive Storytelling (IS) systems so far has been active interventions by the user by means of a variety of modalities. PINTER is an IS system that uses physiological inputs-surface electromyography (EMG) and galvanic skin response (GSR) -as a form of passive interaction, opening up the possibility of the use of traditional filmic techniques [2, 3] to implement IS without requiring immersion-breaking interactive responses. The goal of this demonstration is to illustrate the ways in which passive interaction combined with filmic visualisation, dialogue and music, and a plan-based narrative generation approach can form a new basis for an adaptive interactive narrative.
