【谷歌申请多项专利欲造AR图书】美国专利商标局近日公布了两个由谷歌公司申请的专利,其一名为“故事书装置”(Storytelling Device)或是“交互式图书”(Interactive Book),主要利用多种传感器实现交互功能;另一专利名为“媒体增强立体书”(Media Enhanced Pop-up Book),主要实现将实体书同电脑连接的功能

Google Takes Books Through The Looking Glass With Augmented Reality

7.30 0730

Technology that would bring the experience of reading a book into the 21st century—and not by replacing the book with a computer—was patented today by Google, according to filings posted today at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
The technology outfits a physical book with numerous page sensors, touch sensors, and motion sensors to understand the reader's movements. Based on those movements and the storyline of the book, the system adds augmented reality elements over the pages.Google calls the invention, simply, the "Storytelling Device," or "Interactive Book."

A small hamburger-shaped device plugs into an interface over the spine of the book and projects imagery over the pages. And a small speaker adds sound to the experience.
Google has released many patents for various parts of the invention. For example, one of the patents released today describes how sensors detect the turning of a page to trigger audiovisual events.
The technology is interesting because it embraces an age-old physical medium and adds compelling digital audio and imagery on top. Let's just hope there are no ads.

In another patent published today, we get a look at the "Media Enhanced Pop-up Book," an earlier take on the augmented book that uses a phone or tablet to to add to the reading experience. Each page of the book has another page that opens up vertically. A phone or tablet sits behind that page and projects complementary images through to the reader.
Both patents were originally filed by the same team of five Google engineers in early January 2015.
