Living Popups

Why Libraries?

With its friendly and accessible design, Living Popups empowers libraries to deliver an interactive and engaging augmented reality (AR) education experience to a diverse user base, making it a remarkable reference resource for literary services aiming to cultivate lifelong reading and learning skills through its instructional capabilities.


This AR technology works with a simple LP Bookspace app—easily downloadable by using a mobile device and scanning a QR code, or going to the app store—and a library book of the user’s choice. Through the app, the user will point the device’s camera at the book cover or illustrated page to bring the story to life with engaging context and background information to enrich comprehension.
