Ukiyosk: Blending Art with Augmented Reality & The Bookstore

What is Ukiyosk?

Ukiyosk is a unique concept of integrating a shelf hosting books, audio albums and others with Augmented Reality to provide a realistic feel of a store. On scanning the TIGER image imprinted on each of the artwork with an AR Application, the image would emerge as a real interactive object or a video directing to Ukiyosk (The Virtual Bookstore) having options to purchase either digital (Flipbooks) or Paperbacks.

Our hosting partners may place this 'shelf' either in digital or print format (wall hanging, portrait, canvas, coloured print out, pillows, mugs etc.) in their homes, outlets or any other networks and garner readers or viewers for the books. We have a tracking mechanism by which we will record the sales from our partners and provide them with their due remuneration for. In other words, each of our hosting partner would behave as an individual Virtual Bookstore.

OR

Simply, have the brilliant artworks behaving as a decorative show in your house, office or outlet and at the same time access all Flipbooks and Paperbacks and new updates on new releases on Ukiyosk.

Ukiyosk also enables artists to submit their work and sell them on a global marketplace. There is no fee for artists to list their work with Ukiyosk and for every sale, artists gain royalty.
