Children’s books in 3D
Researchers at South Korea’s Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology have announced the creation of two children’s books that incorporate 3D technology. According to an article from Reuters, when the books are tilted the animation is activated for those wearing 3D glasses. Kim Sang-cheol, team leader of the project, said that the technology could be used for all types of books and eventually on smartphones or museum exhibits but “it will take a while to market this technology to the general public.”
