Alice for the iPad Brings A Classic to Life
Check out this incredible e-book version of Alice in Wonderland from Atomic Antelope, which comes complete with all sorts of interactive features that help to make it so much more than a simple e-book. This really is the sort of thing that so many people were getting excited about before the iPad came out – interactive books that totally involve the reader in the story. For example, to make Alice grow big, you must tilt the iPad one way; to shrink her down to just six inches tall, tilt the iPad the other way. Or how about throwing tarts at the Queen of Hearts and watching them bounce off her with realistic physics?!
Each illustration has been digitally restored from Lewis Carroll’s original book, then rendered in full colour, and all illustrations are now fully gravity aware. The app includes 52 pages, 20 of which are animated scenes. As Atomic Antelope themselves say, “Alice for the iPad is the digital pop-up book for a Blade Runner generation.”
Alice for the iPad is available for $8.99 from the iPad App Store, or you can download the Lite version for free.
