Discover a cool pop-up book 發現一個很酷的產品-實用的立體魔法書

Hi03.gifI found a cool and unique pop-up book named “This Book Is a Planetarium” which I would like to share with you. The pop-up book is no longer just a work of art, but a functional one.

我發現了一個很酷的立體書,叫做“This Book Is a Planetarium”。這本書把立體書又提升到了另一個層次,不只是個值得收藏的藝術品,還有很多實用的功能。

The official site has a description about this book:

Paper Engineer Kelli Anderson, who also created the pop-up This Book is a Camera in 2015, now takes the concept of pop-ups with real functionality to a whole new level. The result is a surprising and beautiful book with stylish pop-ups that all have different functions like a musical instrument with strings, a spiralgraph, a decoder ring, a perpetual calendar and a speaker that amplifies the sound of your smartphone.

You can learn something new while you play. Every page is a new surprise, let you learn science, education, and fun while reading the book. I think it’s a wonderful educational tool for kids.happy03.jpg

正如官網對這本書的描述,紙張工程師Kelli Anderson在創作了This Book is a Camera,把立體書的實用性提升到了一個新的層次。這是一本美麗且令人驚嘆的書,其中功能有樂器、萬花尺、解碼圈、萬年曆、手機擴音喇叭等

你可以在遊戲中邊玩邊學習,每一頁都是一個新的驚喜。我認為這本書很適合做為陪伴小孩子一起閱讀的教育工具,小孩子可以從中學習一些科學的原理和知識,也可以得到很多樂趣。Happy06.jpg

Functions 功能性


There are six functions in this book 這本書包含了六種功能,敘述如下:

1. Instrument 撥弦樂器

Use the yellow pick attached to the top left corner of the page or your finger to play the strings and make a song.

你可以用左上角附上的黃色撥片來彈奏,也可以用自己的手指來彈奏,就像彈奏吉他一樣。據說另一隻手可以按住弦來改變音階,所以可以真正彈奏出音樂。

2. Decoder 解碼器

Use the decoding ring to add the message you want to convey or decode the message. Using a set of numbers as a password, you can use the decoder to get a corresponding set of encrypted text. In opposite, this set of passwords can be used to decode.

這個解碼器可以幫你的訊息加密,外圈是你的訊息,裡圈則設定一個數字為密碼,轉到正確的密碼後,就可以得到一組加密的文字。將這組看似無意義的文字交給你的朋友,只有知道密碼的人才能使用這個解碼器來還原正確的訊息。是不是很有趣?我想光是這個功能就可以讓小孩子玩上大半天了。happy04-1.jpg

3. Calendar 萬年曆

You can quickly check the date and the week from this calendar, which is highly practical.

可以迅速查詢日期及星期的萬年曆,實用性頗高

4. Planetarium 天文星象圖

Turn on the flashlight function of the mobile phone and put it under the planetarium in the dark. The planetarium will project the autumn northern hemisphere constellation diagram on the ceiling.

這個是我最喜歡的功能,也是這本書的主打。

把手機的手電筒功能打開,放到這個貝殼狀的外罩底下。在黑暗中,就會映照出美得令人屏息的暈光,透過外罩上的鏤空,可以把北半球秋天的星座圖映照到天花板上,營造星空下的浪漫情懷。love08.gif

5. Speaker 擴音喇叭

Use your phone or any music player to play music, then place your phone at the arrow and the music will be amplified.

這個功能也是我覺得很有創意的設計,利用聲波傳導的物理性,將手機的聲音透過紙張達到擴音的效果。其中三角箭頭和喇叭中的空隙,完美的成為一個手機座,是個令人讚賞的小巧思。idea02.jpg

6. Spiralgraph 萬花尺

Use the Spirograph on the left side of the page to draw a variety of geometric shapes on the right side of the page.

不知道大家小時候有沒有玩過這個萬花尺?我小時候就曾經被萬花尺創造出來的美麗圖像迷惑過,顯然從小就是外貌協會的成員

我認為這個功能雖然不是什麼新的創意,但是很適合讓小孩透過這個萬花尺創造出美麗的花朵並且培養他們的美感,小朋友會因此很有成就感。
