Books of the Future – iDinosaur and iSolar System

Jake DaCosta, editor of our stunning new Augmented Reality books iDinosaur and iSolar System, reveals his top picks for an incredible virtual learning experience….

A UNIQUE AUGMENTED REALITY EXPERIENCE

This week we’ve been busy launching the first of our exciting Augmented Reality books with free downloadable apps that work on both iOS and Android – iDinosaur and iSolar System.

Designed exclusively for mobile devices including iPad, iPhone, iPod and Android, the Augmented Reality apps work with trigger images in the pages of a book to animate the images and bring the books alive into your home or classroom. Ideal for teachers to enhance Key Stage 2 learning at school or for parents to entertain the kids at home, this interactive Augmented Reality experience makes learning immediately fun!
