Templar Publishing has released the U.K.’s first book to be enhanced with augmented reality. Using a webcam and a software plug-in developed by Total Immersion, owners of Drake’s Comprehensive Compendium of Dragonology will be able to access the special feature by holding up a particular page to their computer screen. The software uses markers on the page as spatial reference points, allowing it to draw a 3-D model of a dragon above the image of the book on screen. Owners can rotate the book to view the dragon from different angles as it moves and roars.
