Inspiration: Creating rich multimedia applications

This is a nice example of an ebook – well actually it is just an application – that takes advantage of some of the technology that is available today.

What I don’t like about this movie is that they promote the application in such a way that it looks like only the iPad could run such an application. Goddammit, it’s just an application, and believe it or not but my laptop/PC can deal with applications.

Let’s hope that schools develop such applications and drop the boring books. 😉

Buy ‘The elements: a visual exploration’ from iTunes.
