Don't feel like you are being a wet-blanket. I knew going in that Sony had a head-start and I was in for an uphill battle at best. But, if this storybook is the best that Sony can come up with (considering they have already designed a a wand)...and they have tons of engineers at their disposal...good luck. I am one engineer by myself and I am wrapping up a proof-of-concept of something much cooler. If need be, I will patent the portions I that I have a legal right to patent and then I will take it to Ascendio or LeakyCon next year and let the fans see what true immersion into the world of Harry Potter is really all about. I probably will never make a dime, but at least I can say that I came up with a cool idea and brought it to fruition.

Who knows...that might land me a job at Sony...LOL.

Sony owns the Playstation. Sony doesn't own the Internet. My proof-of-concept doesn't involve the Playstation. Wouldn't you rather have an immersive interface directly to Pottermore that doesn't require the PS3 or the XBox360/Kinect? I would think that would peak the interest of many more fans.

I could be wrong. I am not saying I am right. But, a grass-roots approach to get people interested might catch Sony's attention.
