Wonderbook sees Sony Computer Entertainment join forces with Harry Potter author JK Rowling to bring storytelling to life on PlayStation 3.

Announced at the Sony Press Conference at the E3 Expo in June, it is a new augmented reality "edutainment" book, which works with the PS3, PlayStation Eye camera and the PlayStation Move motion controller.

Watch the video below featuring Digital Spy's Matthew Reynolds taking a look inside the Wonderbook:



Wonderbook, aimed predominantly at children aged 5 to 12, will launch later in the year with Book of Spells, a new story created by Rowling and set in the Harry Potter universe.

You can buy the product in three ways - as a standalone book, bundled with the EyeToy and PS Move, or in a complete bundle with the PS3, book and both accessories.

While pricing and an exact release date has not yet been announced, it is expected to be released by the end of the year.
