After publishing an iBook on the new Chevrolet Corvette StingRay in early February, with this book it is the intention to make full use of the available technologies for iBook publishing. That means that aside from supplying all available information on the SRT Viper and its history, the iBook will feature HD videos plus interactive 3D models of the car.
This requires quite a substantial amount of work, and to get it just right some advance funding is needed. Specifically to create the interactive 3D content for the book, an accurate and up to date detailed model of the SRT Viper in its various guises for street and track usage, I am commissioning a 3D modeler, who is an expert in this. It will take him 2 weeks to get the model done in the variations I want, and have them converted to iBook configuration.
Meanwhile I have been and am gathering and creating text, imagery and video content, but I do that on my own accord.
I expect the project to be finished well before the Christmas shopping starts, so that people who donate can get the rewards in time for their gift giving.
There is no risk involved. As the previous publications prove, it can be done within the set time frame, and the return on investment is naturally a copy of the actual book, as well as the previous published iBooks, depending on level choice of participation.
