IPST – 3D Augmented Reality Books

Augmented Reality is definitely the next big thing in bridging the gap between the digital and physical world. This 3D Augmented Reality 3D Book teaches children about the layers of the earth, how are they discovered, how do they related and function, siesmic waves, comparative sizes, and more. The Institue for the Promotion of Teaching Science and Technology, an agency under the Ministry of Education, produced this Augmented Reality Learning Media that would be appealing and enjoyable to children because of its unique 3D interaction and presentation.

Check it out, it give a whole need meaning to the concept of a pop-up book! Children would be much more receptive to reading if the text literally jumped out of the book at them. If we had books like this when we were younger I am sure we would have all become avid readers! If college textbooks were this fun student may actually crack them open more than a week before an exam!

The world’s first ever Immersive Technology Summit will be held at the Los Angeles Center Studios (LACS) on October 21st, 2010.

Augmented Reality Encyclopedia

Have you ever heard of the fascinating new technology called Augmented Reality? It allows you to add virtual 3D-content to your real environment – even more – to interact with this 3D-content in your personal space. My video shows an example where we superimposed 3d-content on a classical encyclopedia (a kind of a magic book) Augmented Reality will change to way we use information in the future. You can meet your friends while walking through the street, your virtual buddy walking next to you. You can shop online and try out your favorite products (e.g. furnitures) in your living room before buying them. Generally speaking Augmented Reality brings to together two worlds: The real world and the virtual world. This will allow to combine every kind of user related content with the personal world of the user.

Please feel free to comment on the video or ask questions on the technology behind.

UPDATE: 1 year later – thank you very much for all your inspiring feedback and comments. Today this technology is already in use for books and interactive advertisement tools. There is also a live-demo available.
