Books come in a few forms—be it physical or digital ones.

The latter one, especially, is getting a huge amount of attention these days—considering the fact that the technology offers comfort and ease for people to be able to read anywhere in the form of e-books.

As physical books are often being left behind, they can actually be elevated by blending technology into people's reading experiences. Utilizing AR experiences can be the key to answering the matter.

For publishers, you can publish your books to the public—even better with an added value, which makes your book cover or pages scannable to enliven your AR content.

No worries—this can be applied to books of any genre or age!

Let's say, for a children's book, you can make the cover or each page of the book scannable to provide interactive elements.

You can enliven the characters inside the story into reality, so children will find it exciting to keep on reading the story.

Augmented Reality Book Example

One of the examples of augmented reality books is the AR Book series made by Assemblr. We provide physical, scannable books with AR experiences.

Therefore, when readers scan the book with the Assemblr Studio mobile app, they will be able to enliven education-themed AR content that matches the information on each page, in the form of AR experiences.

If you're working in a publishing company, here's the good news: you can actually incorporate AR experiences for your book by yourself, using Assemblr Studio!

Feel free to create the AR content from scratch and visualize your ideas, or choose from the premade AR templates available.
