JK Rowling Augments Reality via Sony PS

Source: VentureBeat, Jun 2012

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has signed on to write the first release for PlayStation’s augmented reality peripheral, Wonderbook.

Designed to look like a real book, players interact with Wonderbook using the PlayStation Move motion controller to create and manipulate digital effects. And thanks to the PlayStation Eye camera, everything happens with you in the center of the action. You and the Wonderbook appear live on your television, while waving the Move over the book translates to a magical on-screen result in real time, from casting levitation spells to bringing a dragon to life.
