Wonderbook and Book of Spells

This is exciting. At our computer vision group at London Studio, we have been working on a augmented reality gaming and story-telling PS3 peripheral which is called Wonderbook. Wonderbook is an augmented reality book where the story comes alive on the pages of the book. The first game is a collaboration with J.K. Rowling (author of Harry Potter books) and is titled “Book of Spells”.

It was announced at E3 2012, and here are a couple of early videos and trailers.
