So I just discovered a very cool app called the IMAG-N-O-TRON by Moonbot Studios that is used with the iPad. The app comes with a specific book (The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore) and was designed to work with it. You position the iPad over one of the pages of the book, and the app "augments" the pages with an incredible collection of animated images from the page! Sounds pretty weird, right? You have to check this technology out! Really. I can see this becoming a great way to illustrate Biology textbooks for example. Have a look here or at the Touch and Go blog from SLJ.
