BBW is bringing Augmented Reality (AR) books to their sale this week. Specifically, the Hippo Magic line of AR children's books. Here’s how they work:
So I tried it out. You first need to download the Hippo Magic app which is on Google Play. You turn it on, hover over the book, and it will prompt you to download said book (so the files are client-side). And that's it! Any pages that have AR content will have a little logo at the bottom of them.
Big Bad Wolf are the only retailer for hippo magic AR books, in Asia. They will be at the SLECC this weekend. If you know a kid who loves reading - or ought to get into reading - pick one up for them and see what happens.
Also, bring a friend. I know we will. See you there!
