If you didn't think you wanted an iPad before, you're definitely going to want one now. Atomic Antelope has created Alice for the iPad, a new app that revolutionizes the experience of reading Alice in Wonderland by allowing users to interact with moving pictures and animated characters throughout the story.
In the incredible trailer for the app, you see a user tilting the iPad to engage the images on the screen. Alice grows big and shrinks small; the Mad Hatter shakes; and things fall from the sky. Readers can also throw tarts at the Queen of Hearts and watch the Cheshire Cat vanish into thin air.
The e-book includes 52 pages and 20 animated scenes, based on the original illustrations in Lewis Carroll's classic tale. Alice for the iPad is currently the bestselling children's book app to date, which makes us wonder if more e-books will have interactive elements in the future.
Would moving images and features make you want to read more digital books? Or would it be distracting to you? Let us know what you think in the comments after watching the trailer for Alice for the iPad below. The app is currently available on iTunes for $8.99, and users can test out a "lite" version of the app for free.
