Augmented Reality (AR) has a wide spectrum of usages. In recent years, AR has been used in e-books for arousing readers’ interest and making reading fun. Unfortunately, producing AR effects and incorporating them into e-books is not an easy task. The aim of this project is to develop an easy-to-use platform for generating and visualizing e-books enriched with AR. The user needs only to drag-and-drop a pre-built AR model onto the desired position of an e-book page, the tool will generate a QR code on the page. When a user scans the QR code with the visualization mobile app, an AR model will be displayed on the mobile device. Alternatively, a user can also open an e-book directly with the mobile app, when a user clicks the QR code, an AR model will be displayed.
