Innovation Birmingham Campus-based design, software development and manufacturing start-up, Tinyme, has launched a fully personalised, augmented reality kids book, The Amazing Alphabet.
The Amazing Alphabet is a beautiful, keepsake book that is uniquely personalised and custom printed for each child. By hovering over the book with free accompanying app, the characters jump out of the page in 3D with music and sound effects, allowing the app to read the story to the child by enabling them to engage with the printed page in an interactive way.
Launched in 2006, Tinyme has grown organically from a one-person start-up to a 50-strong team, with an international presence in Australia, US and the UK.
Mike Wilson, Founder of Tinyme, said: “As a Dad of six, I’ve spent hundreds of hours reading books to my kids; encouraging them to have a deep love for reading. I’ve also spent quite a bit of time playing around with a bunch of a pretty cool kids apps. As someone who founded a studio which writes, illustrates, develops software and even physically prints personalised books for kids, I’m really excited by what our team at Tinyme has now created.
“We’ve always loved how kids get so excited about having a book written and illustrated specially just for them, but a personalised book just for them that pops to life with music and animation that you can engage with, now that’s really, really special.”
