Guinness World Records 2013 goes 3D with augmented reality iOS app

Guinness World Records 2013 goes 3D with augmented reality iOS app.

When I was a kid, comic books cost a quarter, Atari made videogame consoles and personal computers — not just software — and the Guinness Book of World Records was a thick paperback book with a bunch of black and white photos of people with gross, three-foot-long fingernails. A copy of the 2013 edition showed up earlier this week, proving that it’s not just technology that’s changed over those years. Even a large, hardcover book can be updated to make trivia more interesting and incorporate your iOS or Android device to make those paper pages seem a little less static. Don’t worry, not everything has changed — the fingernails are still there (pages 74-75).
Once you pick up a copy of the book itself ($28.95 list price, currently selling on Amazon for $19.11), the next step is to download the free Guinness World Records 2013 Augmented Reality app (also available for Android). There’s also a second, free app, Guinness World Records 2013 The Bonus Chapter, which is an e-book full of supplemental material that’s not included in the dead tree version. The former lets you point a camera-equipped smartphone or tablet at designated pages to see an animation something like this:

 would be enough to spike some interest in kids who are increasingly expectant of such things, but it’s limited to only a half dozen instances through the nearly 300 pages, so I wouldn’t be looking at this as adding an immersive new element to the experience. That being said, my 10-year-olds were on this book pretty quickly, sitting together on the couch and flipping through the glossy pages.

Among the Guinness world records that might be of interest to GeekDad readers (spoiler alert, although if you’re a regular GeekDad reader, the odds are pretty good you already know these):
                                                      GWR2013 Augmented Reality
Largest concentration of observatories: Mauna Kea in Hawaii with 13, including the world’s largest infrared and submillimeter telescopes.
    Furthest distance from Earth traveled by humans: 248,655 miles by the Apollo 13 crew back in 1970.
    Largest collection of Superman memorabilia goes to Herbert Chavez of the Philippines with 1,253 Superman-related items (to go along with his extensive Superman-inspired plastic surgeries).
    The Library of Congress in Washington DC (Serials and Government Publications Division) holds the record for having the largest collection comics in a museum, with over 100,000 issues covering over 5,000 different titles.
    The most successful merchandise franchise in movies? Yeah, it’s Star Wars.

The augmented reality Guinness World Records 2013 is intended as a bridge between old-school paper books and modern content consumption.

Dushehra Mahotsav 2012 - World's tallest raavan in Barara, Ambala

Dushehra Mahotsav 2012 - World's tallest raavan in Barara, Ambala

Barara: When thousands of Ravana effigies go up in flames on Wednesday, the 195-feet Ravana here will dwarf all others in India.

The Ravana structure in Barara town in Haryana’s Ambala district had last year entered the Limca Book of Records with a height of 185 feet.

The Ramlila committee at Barara, 80 km from Chandigarh, has now approached the Guinness Book of World Records for getting the 195-feet structure enlisted as the tallest Ravana in the world.

“A team of over 100 people have worked very hard in the last few weeks to prepare the Ravana,” committee president Tejinder Singh Chauhan said.

The Barara Ravana, built at a cost of Rs.15 lakh, will go up in smoke Wednesday.

Over 100 quintals of paper, 30 quintals of iron pipes and 10 quintals of clothes were used to make it. It weighs around four tonnes (4,000 kg). The sword held by the Ravana itself is 48 feet long.

“The height from the knees to the shoulder is over 85 feet,” an artisan at the site said.

The town had its share of limelight for the first time when it erected a 150-feet tall Ravana structure. Since then, every year, the committee has been increasing the height.

The 2009 Ravana, at 175 feet, entered the Limca Book of Records.

"Every single one of you holds this record," he said, handing over the certificate to Punjab provincial government representative Hamza Shahbaz Sharif.

On Saturday night 42,813 people in the national hockey stadium sang the national anthem together, smashing the previous best of 15,243 held by India.
