Physics, which follows a number of natural phenomena, plays a significant role in the perception and functioning of our world. Thanks to physics, people were able to develop sophisticated technologies that themselves determine the way we recognise and learn today. This also influences an additional relation to our surroundings.
Vividbooks shows how recognition and mediation of basic laws of nature could develop in the future. Presently, when the majority of people just accept information superficially, the interactive textbook of Vít Škop allows the material to be understood and tried out. Physical phenomena are explained here using an augmented (extended) reality and in a playful and enjoyable form. It combines an interactive textbook in the tablet with worklists, motivates towards collective problem solution, and towards searching for one's own path to knowledge. It provides information dynamically and principles of many phenomena can be modelled and subsequent events understood.
Vitek Skop is a young Czech visual designer with experience from famous design offices in London and New York.
He experiments with meaningful uses of augmented reality and explores methods of how they can be implemented in our lives. He believes that the question „why?“ is the main question a designer should ask himself all the time when creating anything at all. He recently published a project called Vividbooks which connects augmented reality with Physics in a children’s textbooks.
