利用AR找書及增進閱讀體驗

相信很多人都看過2009年美國 MIT 的 Pranav Mistry 在 TED 的演說,並且對他所展示的穿載式 SixthSense 技術留下深刻印象,有很多人都說這位印度人真的是天才。為什麼特別強調印度人呢? 因為看到另一位印度人 Sures Kumar 所執行的 Nimble 專案,利用擴增實境(AR)的技術來增進閱讀體驗。


從找書到閱讀實體書都可以有不同的體驗,不過 Nimble 仍在概念階段,Sures Kumar目前正在從事較小規模的 prototypes and user testing,底下是 concept video。

One of the places where the tension between searching and browsing is readily apparent is the library. We go to search for a book, do research, or just read and work. However, we often find ouselves getting lost among the shelves of books, spending time browsing, and hoping for a serendipitous discovery or two.

Nimble shows what a mixed touch, digital, projection, and book-based library might look like. This is relevant because people still like the tactile feel of books and other printed media and they also like to browse. The project also allows to collect and sort out notes and highlights from the books you are reading.

Rather than trying to find a book in the x^-15 decimal place with the Dewey decimal system, you can navigate spatially and orient yourself in the direction of your search using the digital search compass.
