Wonderbook is an augmented reality peripheral for the PlayStation 3 console. The user holds a physical book-like object and stories come to life as the software displays content on the PlayStation 3's screen.

Development[edit]

Wonderbook was announced during the Sony press conference at the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo.[1] It is an augmented reality book which is designed to be used in conjunction with the PlayStation Move and PlayStation Eye.[1][2] The Wonderbook features computer vision techniques developed jointly with the Computer Vision group at Oxford Brookes University. Marketed under the tagline "One book, a thousand stories",[3] it was released together with the launch title Book of Spells in time for the 2012 holiday season.[4]
