Google’s digital designers recently unveiled the WebGL Bookcase, a digital bookcase that is an infinite 3D helix. According to a post on the Google Blog, a user can spin the bookcase side-to-side and up and down with a mouse. It holds 3D models of more than 10,000 titles from Google Books.
The books are organized into 28 subjects and the following video shows how to browse and choose a book.
In addition to getting the book on books.google.com page, a user can open the title on a phone or tablet via the QR code that’s in the bottom left corner of the page. Google recommends using Google Chrome and a fast computer with a powerful graphics card. The interface is experimental and may not work on some machines.
