Carlton Books: Into Deep Space

Delve into deep space using the power of Augmented Reality. Our project with Carlton Books is making it possible to explore the solar system and beyond right from the comfort of your home.

Augmented Reality can be a powerful tool when it comes to encouraging people to read and learn. Concepts that would previously only have been described or shown in photos and videos can now be visualised as if they are right in front of you. This is why content creators and education providers alike are eager to explore this technology and be more imaginative in the way they interact with their audiences, and Carlton Books are no exception.

When we heard that Carlton Books wanted our help with their new Digital Magic seriesĀ (a collection of educational, interactive children’s books) we were pretty excited. We were tasked with creating a series of AR interactions for their iExplore: Into Deep Space publication that takes users on a journey through our solar system and beyond, exploring planets, stars, satellites, nebulae and more.

What we created was a smart device app that, when used in conjunction with various pages throughout the book would trigger stunning 3D representations of content related to that page. Plus, we gave users the ability to interact with the 3D content to find out more information. Plus, we created a 360 deep space journey that users can activate using the integrated virtual reality mode – pretty cool, right?
