When I was a wee lad and asked my parents whether I could have the latest toys to play with, they gave me a sheet of blank paper and asked me to write a story or draw something, exercising my imagination in the process. Well, that had its benefits, but kids these days have less thinking to do, since their imagination gets far less exercise as adults figure out what kids want instead. Case in point, the Popar Books from Popar Toys that rely on Augmented Reality (AR) technology in order to develop an immersive learning experience which will enable its users to actually see such books come to life. Imagine its printed pages do more than just “transfer” words into your mind, but will also blossom with incredible virtual 3D objects and animations thanks to the use of a webcam and Popar’s range of specially coded books and cards.
It will definitely take far more effort than ordinary reading, and you cannot simply hold up a torchlight under a blanket to read this at night if you want to enjoy the full Augmented Reality experience. Right now, Popar hopes to popularize their new reading material by throwing in a free webcam with each purchase of a Popar Book Starter Kit.
