Augmented book

Mobile application, 2008

A mobile phone is used to display multimedia content related to a book text. Books, as a medium, have many qualities that any screen based device cannot equal. Books are tangible, easy to read and carry, they allow to easily take notes and their interface is universally known. Instead of discarding the book, I decided to provide an handy screen based tool to support the printed medium without affecting its qualities.
The project was developed to support my MA degree dissertation about Human Computer Interface design.
It runs on S60 mobile phones using d-touch library.
