Harry Potter creator JK Rowling to publish content

Sony's announced Wonderbook for PlayStation 3, a unique concept that mixes literature and augmented reality.


Wonderbook works by placing a physical book in the player's hands and "brings stories to life" in your living room using PlayStation Eye and augmented reality, the platform holder explained.

You'll also be able to change stories with choices you make.

Harry Potter creator JK Rowling is collaborating with Sony to create Book of Spells for Wonderbook.

Book of Spells has players hold the 'book' whilst using a PlayStation Move controller as a virtual magic wand.
