Author and photographer Rick Smolan

CBS News Technology Analyst Larry Magid speaks with Rick Smolan, the photographer who covered Robyn Davidson during part of her epic solo journey across the Australian outback. Davidson’s saga was turned into a movie called Tracks, which featured Smolan as a character played by Adam Driver. Smolan’s book documents Davidson’s journey and the movie —  not just by words and pictures but by video, using a smartphone app called Ausasma that lets you point your phone at pages to make the book come alive.
