The 3D series combines DK's classic reference approach with cutting edge augmented reality technology to create an incredible interactive experience!
Lighthearted, enticing, and fun, the text in each book is packed with information to give a comprehensive overview of the subject. But there's more! Spread throughout the book are special activating boxes that indicate the presence of digital pop outs that when held up to a webcam attached to your PC, feature amazing 3D digital animation on the screen! Using the magic of augmented reality, these animations are superimposed on a live image of the book and its actual surroundings, making it appear as if they're really in the room with you-a miracle of modern technology that has to be seen to be believed.
Discover the world of the human body, recreated with incredible augmented reality animations!
3D Human is filled with incredible 3D body animations that literally leap right off the page! Through the magic of augmented reality technology, you can see jumping skeletons, beating hearts, and other body systems come to life on the screen of your PC, appearing to be right in the room with you.

My Opinion:
Meet the coolest way to get a kid to read a book, make it 3D!
I did think this was an exceptionally great idea. It takes a lot of thought to get all the details right. And this book is very thorough.
Even as an adult, there was much I learned from this book. And I thought I already had a great grasp on the human body, but was wrong, and learned much more.
This was a fabulous way of learning the body, though there are a couple of gross moments. That's all part of the learning process, is including the gross things no one likes to talk about.


5/5


Recommend? YES!!!

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.

Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void.
