USA Today offers sneak peek at Wizarding World

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 Jan. 28. 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 webcam and 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.
