What I have learned: This project has been a huge learning curve for me and as a result it has been very beneficial. It has been an aim of mine for a long time to use 3D animation (CGI) in my work. This project was the first time I used it on a larger scale and I enjoyed it a lot. I used the program Maya and this was one of the things I had to develop my skills in the most in order to end up...

This link sends you too a web page that tells you about which learning style pupils like the most and learn from the most. From this i knew that my book would be popular with pupils because most most popular kind of learning style is kinaesthetic which means people like to interact with things and “arranging items”. This is why i have cards that people can move and interact with. This...
Total immersion →
Total immersion is creating ground braking augmented reality and it is at the top of the chain when it comes to new and creative effects for advertising and for entertainment. The company focuses on MLT (marker less tracking) which is a key part of my AR book. The visuals they have created already is a big inspiration for me and helps me generate ideas for my own book.
Between paper and screen →
This is a PDF document that shows analysis between the limitations of paper and screen. I found it very helpful in deciding what form of media to have my book in, whether it is ipad or paper book. From this document i came to the conclusion that the screen was more more economic, interactive and accessible (download instead of going to a shop) However the book is better for navigation, easier to...
Space interactive website →
This is a website that i found very useful for getting information and text for my book. It is a factual website which i can trust to have reliable fact and information on, unlike websites like wikipedia.
Solar system animation →
This animation is a films interactive animation that shows you the solar system but then allows you too interact with the planets and find out more depth about each planet. The thing i don’t like about it and i will make sure i don’t include it into my animation is the childish found effect. I am planning on having atmospheric sound effect but not beeping or bleeping as it makes it...
Nicely animated stop motion →
This stop motion illustrates how animation can vary in aesthetic. It made me wonder if AR could use stop motion instead of CGI? And which animation style would pupils prefer? I think this is answered by the powerful emergence of CGI in films and promotional adverts for businesses. So although my animation will be CGI and 3D, it doesn’t mean that it has to look tradition, It could emulate...
Video and digital animation mixed →
The animation i am talking about on this page is one of the chimney’s falling down with face. The humour is something that catches my attention. Humour plays a huge part in animation and from this video i am wondering if i could try and add some humorous elements into my animation as well as keeping it educational. Humour is a great way to also keep the attention of the pupils.

Space animation - 2 moon theory →
I lot of educational books in primary and secondary school are separated into two style’s of text books, one with all the information in about the subject; and the other is a Q&A book which asks you questions which you can find the answer for in the information book. My book will combine them both. My book will have the informative text as well as the user being asked to interact with...

Scale and size video →
Incredible video about scale and the size of everything in the universe
Science with AR →
This idea is about a telescope that projects a AR Image so it looks like solar systems and planets are closer so you can get a better look at them. This is a good idea and gave me the idea of having a card that people can put an AR card on their window and it projects the same type of image or an image of a comet about to crash into your window.
