Pick Up A USA Today Tomorrow And Enter Harry Potter’s World On Your Computer

With just a computer, webcam and the newspaper, you can get a three-dimensional sneak peek at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort before its opening in spring 2010.

Start by buying a copy of USA Today on Thursday January 28th . Then put the printed map in that newspaper in front of your webcam and you can take a closer look at the entire area from all sides and angles through augmented-reality technology. Among the highlights:

• Hogwarts castle will appear.

• Hold the map closer to your webcamand explore Hogsmeade village.

• See where the Hogwarts Express has just arrived.

• Blow on your computer’s microphone, and the banners on the map will wave.
