Newly Released Yellow Cab of the Universe Now Available as iBooks textbook for iPad

New York, Nov 2, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - Galvani Studios, under the direction of internationally acclaimed digital creator Eduardo Galvani, announced today the release of the first title in its Yellow Cab series. The Yellow Cab of the Universe (YCU) is a revolutionary learning experience designed expressly for the iPad. This iBooks textbook unleashes the incredible power of iBooks Author, combining stunning artwork, animation, video, music, interactive images, 3D graphics and interesting, informative text to radically redefine how a digital book should look and feel.

"The Yellow Cab of the Universe is a game-changer in every respect. It immediately appeals to readers of all ages - anyone who can swipe an iPad can easily explore the rings of Saturn or view the Martian landscape through the 'eyes' of a NASA rover," says book creator Eduardo Galvani. "The iBooks textbook brings alive the Solar System in a way that's never been able to be done in a book, making the experience compelling for anyone who has ever looked up at the nighttime sky and felt a sense of awe."

As interesting as YCU is for adult readers, it is specifically designed with iBooks Author so that it can be used as an iBooks textbook by secondary school students - especially those who have found science in general and all kinds of textbooks, both paper and digital, lifeless and boring. YCU grabs students with the stickiness of a video game, explaining basic concepts and key facts while taking them on an entertaining journey, all the while reinforcing what they have learned with end-of-chapter reviews.

"Once students of any age discover that textbooks can be engaging, interesting and fun, they will never want to go back," says Galvani. "iBooks textbooks can and should take readers into another universe, regardless of their content and The Yellow Cab series plans to continue to explore other natural sciences as well."
