At its E3 press conference, PlayStation announced a new product called Wonderbook, an interactive book that works along with the PlayStation as a controller of sorts. The product puts a physical book in your hands, and brings stories to life, allowing you to explore and interact like never before.
Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling, is behind the the first book to launch for Wonderbook, a title called Book of Spells.Complete with new content written by Rowling, the book allows you to learn “spells” and interact with your television through the PlayStation Move, using your controller as a wand.
Each chapter in the book teaches a essential skill needed to become a wizard. As you unlock each level a story will tell you a story about a Hogwarts student who didn’t live up to expectations.
“Wonderbook Book of Spells is the closets a Muggle can come to a real spellbook,” Rowling said in a statement displayed during Sony’s E3 press conference. “I’ve loved working with Sony’s creative team to bring my spells, and some of the history behind them to life. This is an extraordinary device that offers a reading experience like no other.”
Moonbot Studios is working on a story for Wonderbook called Diggs Nightcrawler.
