Future Friday: AR Reading and the Next Generation of Bookworms
Making literature fun with AR reading
Augmented reality is set to gain popularity – and sophistication – in the 2020s. Evidently, projects like Pokemon Go and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite prove the masses are already on board. Could these successes have an effect on the world of literature with AR reading?
Since television first emerged in 1927, children favour screens over pages. Granted, phenomenons like J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter franchise led young masses back into bookstores and libraries.
Could smart glasses bring about a similar wave of literary enthusiasm? Evidently, the popularity of smartphone games suggest kids love anything that’s interactive and gamified.
