Re:Shakespeare app  
Samsung has teamed up with the Royal Shakespeare Company to create an app that allows you to "remix" Shakespeare:


"The app, called RE:Shakespeare, includes interactive games and videos and hopes to help students appreciate Shakespeare’s plays by breaking up long scenes into bite-sized chunks that can be reinterpreted, remixed and performed in unique ways.

The app is ‘hosted’ by RSC ambassador David Tennant, and also features actress Tamsin Greig, director Iqbal Khan, beatboxing artist Shlomo, and rapper and poet Akala. Users can create their own Dubsmash-style music videos, mixing in Shlomo’s beats with Shakespearean verse to create tracks.

The app also enables users to perform on a virtual stage with 360-degree immersive video, shot on the Royal Shakespeare Theatre’s stage at Stratford-upon-Avon, and provides pupils with tools to get to grips with Shakespearean language."

All I know is that the descriptive video made me feel old. Who are these people?
