The Technology is Ready. The Possibilities are Endless.
Fiction. Travel guide. Cookbook. Textbook. Magazine. No matter the genre, Sideways provides the tools and expertise needed to harness the power of digital storytelling. Simply put, great writing merges with smart technology to create fully interactive works that engage, amaze, teach, and delight readers, and enhance and expand the written word.
Sideways offers the following unique technologies:
Anigraphic Engine (patent pending)
Using nothing more than text and images, authors can create an entirely new reader experience. The Anigraphic Engine uses simple directorial commands such as pan, zoom, pause and wait to add animation, voice-overs, and sound effects to the page.
An Author App is the ultimate mobile branding and promotional tool for authors and publishers. It blends together and perfectly formats social networking tools, videos, images, interactive maps, calendars, shopping options, and more into one convenient mobile package.
Swipe and Select Database
Readers drag and drop text and images to a fully editable personal notes page. Think of it as digital marginalia. Whether building a shopping list of ingredients from a recipe in a cookbook, planning a personalized itinerary from a travel guide, or isolating sections of a textbook to help ace final exams, this feature will help readers organize and manage the information that matters most to them.
Including maps in books is not a new concept. But offering maps that actually know where the reader is located, and can call up highly detailed location-based information is. This feature’s usefulness goes beyond travel guides. Enhance a mystery novel with a map of the crime scene. Or simply help readers learn about the places that shaped the lives and careers of characters real and fictional. Maps can add layers of context to any story.
Multi-Dimensional Object Builder
This functionality makes it possible for readers to carefully examine and explore any object in 3D. Readers can zoom in and out, spin and rotate the object. Tags that label object’s parts and features can be added as well. As long as your book contains a noun, this amazing interactive resource can bring it to life.
