Overview

The 3D series combines DK's classic reference approach with cutting edge augmented reality technology to create an incredible interactive experience!

Lighthearted, enticing, and fun, the text in each book is packed with information to give a comprehensive overview of the subject. But there's more! Spread throughout the book are special activating boxes that indicate the presence of digital pop outs that when held up to a webcam attached to your PC, feature amazing 3D digital animation on the screen! Using the magic of augmented reality, these animations are superimposed on a live image of the book and its actual surroundings, making it appear as if they're really in the room with you-a miracle of modern technology that has to be seen to be believed.

3D Earth is filled with incredible 3D animations that literally leap right off the page!

Experience a whole new dimension of the Earth through the magic of augmented-reality technology! The amazing complexity of the Earth comes alive with breathtaking colour photographs and up to the minute research while 3D animations molten lava, rising volcanoes, and more come to life before your eyes.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5–7—As with the author's 3-D Dinosaur (DK, 2011) and similarly titled volumes, a digital gimmick adds interest to an otherwise typical sweep over territory with high-reader appeal. Presented in somewhat greater depth of detail than in equivalent "Eyewitness" books, topics on the single-subject spreads introduce our planet's formation and features; geological processes from volcanoes to the rock and water cycles; minerals; fossils; weather and climate; and, in a final and particularly superficial section, "Life." Surrounding 6 to 10 revealing, often-dramatic photos or photorealistic digital images, small-type captions and blocks of expository text give each spread a dense look but do convey a generous load of basic facts. Downloading a finicky title-specific visual recognition program allows readers to enhance the drama on six spreads; holding the book open at just the right angle and distance within view of a webcam activates a herky-jerky pop-up volcano, tornado, or other animation (with sound effects) on the screen. Crude and fuzzy as they are, the 3-D effects will intrigue browsers, at least briefly, but they are more of a sidelight than a significant improvement on the likes of Elizabeth Roman's World of Wonders (Abrams, 2010) or Woodward's One Million Things: Planet Earth (DK, 2009).—John Peters, Children's Literature Consultant, New York City
