Quercus Eye app
Open up a nature book and aim the camera of your smart phone over one of the photographs found inside and your smart phone will immediately start to play extracts from the television documentary that the book accompanies.

Caroline Butler from the publishers, Quercus, joins Click to demonstrate how the technology works, and to debate whether this is the interactive future of books.
