The J.K. Rowling's "Book of Spells" aims to bring a magical book to life on the PlayStation 3 via augmented reality, but is it really a "reading experience?"
Augmented-reality gaming and J.K. Rowling meet in Sony's new Wonderbook; see how it works.
The first book in the series will be a Harry Potter title, part-written by series author JK Rowling.
At E3 2012 in Los Angeles, Sony showed off the new Wonderbook platform for the PlayStation 3. Making use of the PlayStation Eye camera and Move controller, the new title "Book of Spells" features new writing from Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling and aims to provide an immersive reading experience.
The company teams up with J.K. Rowling to deliver a potentially innovative story-telling experience and unique peripheral aimed at children.
