Multiple Level Enhancement of Children’s Picture Books with Augmented Reality
This paper reports a case study on using Augmented Reality (AR) in children’s books. in which we explored the use of various types of interactions at different levels. An AR enhanced 2-page spread is developed to explore interactivity in printed books. We describe the design process and the insights gained into the requirements for AR enhancement of children’s books.
