More and more often we can hear new examples of the application of augmented or refined reality, so this time we have an interesting example. This time, refined reality (AR) found application in books. A new form of books – AR books or books with refined reality, using AR technology allows users to interact with digital characters.

Ar books usually come with a mobile app and a connection to the internet is required. With the help of a camera, the mobile application will recognize a photo from a book and upload related digital content. Digital content can be 2D, 3D characters or recordings.
