Wanted: Virtual Reality Pop-Up Books

So, apparently this is the pop-up book of the future — and while we’re not exactly sure that the future needs a special kind of pop-up book, we have to admit it’s pretty awesome. Between Page and Screen, an “augmented reality pop-up book” by Amaranth Borsuk and Brad Bouse due to come out this spring in a limited run from Siglio Press, has printed symbols on every page that when held up to your webcam, spring up from the paper to become 3D poems. Poetry in three dimensions? Could get kind of interesting. Click through to watch the video, and let us know what you think in the comments.
