How Computers Work

My goal with this project was to give kids a fun and engaging starting point to get them interested in computing. But how do you make a traditional book interesting? By incorporating augmented reality into it!

As well as writing and designing this publication, I created models and presentations in AR that can be viewed and interacted with on a smartphone or tablet. By scanning the QR codes inside the book, kids can not only read about how parts of the computer work but also see them working, take them apart and get as close to them as they like.
