About this project
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge is developing the actual eBook. This challenge is more of an opportunity, though, because Amazon just received a patent for content-rich Kindle eBooks that will allow authors a professional and cost-effective platform to deliver eBooks embedded with pictures, maps, and videos. With the timing of this Kickstarter project Caracol will be one of the very first adopters of Amazon's platform.
The other avenue will be developing it as an eBook app - an eBook with specialized content developed as an app on both iOS and Android. This will be done through Portland developers Shpatar Morina and SpotMetrix, a company that developed SpinCam which is an iPhone app that facilitates sharing of immersive 360 degree media within a community of over half a million users.
