3D Books! - Google Books Now Offers Digital Books in a New Dimension

Thursday, April 01, 2010 at 1:00 AM

These days, 3D seems to be everywhere. From Hollywood blockbusters to LCD televisions, those iconic cardboard glasses seem to be everywhere, even on President Obama. Our friends at YouTube released a 3D experiment, and NASA released 3D images from the Mars rovers.

This got a few of us on the Google Books team to thinking: why not offer our books in 3D? So we've done exactly that. Now, when you visit a book, you'll see a new option: "View in 3D".

Click it and you'll see the page as an anaglyphic image. You'll need a pair of red-cyan 3D glasses and you'll be able to start reading in 3D!
