"... engineers at MIT have come up with a wearable vest that hooks up to an e-book to enhance your reading experience.... By combining networked sensors and actuators, the wearable can change lighting, sound, temperature, chest tightness and even heart rate of the reader to match what the main character in the book is going through."

All that's left for us is dialogue, and a few action verbs.
