LiveBookmark TMbookPal & -bin4 Reflection Point at Things Point at Things implies physically pointing devices at objects to retrieve information, which can be contained in “information shadows”. Augmented Reality is an artificial environment created through the combination of real-world and computer-generated data. Both principles are used in designing bookPal’s LiveBookmark . The LiveBookmark retrieves text from the book via a smart flexible screen that acts as an optical lense. The information is compared to markers for the audio and digital materials and the position is pinpointed before all points are synched. david brahler
