Dare Stories

Dare Stories is a concept for a series of crime books that are enhanced using augmented reality technology, which the reader is able to experience via a smartphone, offering a unique way to combine traditional book reading with interactive elements of computer games.

Instant Reality Player and Instant Vision (instantreality.org) from Fraunhofer IGD Darmstadt is being used to allow marker-less tracking of the illustrations embedded into the book.
