Google has filed a pair of patents with the USPTO that purpose to reinvent how we work together with printed media. The primary patent is for an “Interactive Ebook” with movement and strain sensors embedded inside its pages. The sensors would launch visible belongings by way of augmented actuality every time the reader prompts them, say, by turning a web page. The consumer would not want precise AR glasses; as an alternative a small system seated on the e-book’s backbone would challenge the visuals onto the pages. An embedded speaker would additional improve the onpage motion.
Google’s second patent is for the Interactive Guide’s religious predecessor, the “Media Enhanced Pop-up E-book.” Quite than utilizing a micro-projector, the MEPB leverages a telephone or pill to ship added content material. Each web page of this guide has a secondary, digital web page that “opens” vertically on the cellular gadget. In fact, as with all patents, there’s completely no assure these will truly develop into actual merchandise — and even prototypes, for that matter.
