Augmented Reality 3D Storybook

There was an earlier example of an educational 3D augmented reality book with dinosaur. Similar research has been carried out in the VTT in Otaniemi, Espoo. Here is a demo video:

It looks that there is a startup, too. Here:

I am not sure what would be the add-value of having augmented 3D books in the library, but maybe we could consider some adaptation of this idea. Having some smart tags (QR-codes, tags) one may point with a mobile phone to bring to the big screen a “virtual” character telling stories, listing stories, providing guidance, etc.

    This is exactly what I was proposing. It could be printed cards which augments things like for example: a skull, human skeleton, a globe, rotating sun or any other informative material. But having a feel of something that can be moved around to be seen in all directions is something I thought should be interesting. Maybe, it would be nice to know what the Espoo team experiences and findings were on 3D books and children?
