Wonderbook announced and demonstrated, Harry Potter series to see first Wonderbook published

Wonderbook was recently announced at Sony’s press conference today at E3. Details after the jump!

Wonderbook is a physical book that uses augmented reality. The Playstation Eye will see the book, and show the story coming to life on screen atop the book. As such, children and adults alike could watch themselves in an augmented reality where the book before them is coming to life.

The biggest part of this though is that the creators of Wonderbook have been working with J.K. Rowling. The first book to be published by Wonderbook is Book of Spells. The book will work as described above, but will also utilize the Playstation Move controller as a wand so the players can cast spells.

Wonderbook is due for release in Fall of 2012.
