Bookstrapping : Augmented book reading
Bookstrapping is a service aiming at changing the way we read and write books.
It permits to easily create "augmented printed books", linking each printed page to various digital content including videos, photos or comments by the author of the book or by its readers. These augmented content can be viewed on large variety of interfaces, including web browsers and smartphones.
Bookstrapping shows the lives of books after they are bought. Each page become a discussion space. Each books become a landscape shaped by the behavior of its readers.
"Bookstrappers" are "Bloggers" of a new kind that do not talk about themselves, but about the books they read.
Any page of any book with an ISBN number can be augmented. To take a full advantage of this service, it is possible to insert in your books QRCodes permitting a direct access to augmented content. Use the Bookstrap iPhone app to scan ISBN et QRCodes and access directly to the contents of the bookstrapping service.
