JK Rowling's Book of Spells aims to bring a magical book to life on the PlayStation 3 via augmented reality (AR), but is it really a "reading experience"?
Call it a toy, call it an experience, but we're not sure you should call it a book. JK Rowling's Book of Spells, the launch title for Sony's Wonderbook platform that was announced at Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2012, was originally touted during Sony's press conference as being a way to bring reading to life.
We had a chance to check out the Wonderbook at Sony's E3 booth, and we're not sure reading really entered that much into the equation. It is, however, a fun AR toy with some beautiful animations.
