Better World Books Unveils Highly Anticipated 3D Reading Technology
Socially responsible book retailer leapfrogs over previous attempts at digital book "game-changers"
ATLANTA (April 1, 2011) - Socially responsible online book retailer Better World Books revolutionizes the literary world today by debuting 3D reading technology. The company's patented BWB3D™ glasses and optimized print texts bring the reader closer to the narrative, and create a more interactive, intense reading experience. Every word, in every sentence, appears to pop-off the page in three stunning dimensions.
"Today is the turning point toward Book 2.0 -- the most important transformation in the history of book publishing," says Better World Books CEO David Murphy. "It's an ambitious move to take something as highly evolved as the book, and improve on it. To make it more like a Michael Bay movie or a sick video game -- which is ultimately what we all want. And we did it."
3D books jump out with the help of BWB3D™ Glasses, customized to fit the average human head and make wearers look more intelligent. Available while supplies last, each pair of BWB3D™ Glasses is elegantly designed and equipped with two differently-tinted lenses, each calibrated to receive a separate range of the dimensional spectrum - specifically, 1.5 dimensions each (thus 3 dimensions total when using both lenses).
"BWB3D™ Glasses make classic novels come alive, and convert lengthy blocks of dry prose into action-packed plot that is sure to leave you breathless," added Murphy. "Literature has never been so in your face."
Better World Books launches the technology on a line of classics, including Machiavelli's The Prince 3D, Don Quixote 3D, Pride and Prejudice 3D, Oliver Twist 3D, Great Expectations 3D, Anna Karenina 3D, and Ulysses 3D. These titles will be available from www.BetterWorldBooks.com.
