Friend of Design Notes Kimberly Taylor let me know about an augmented app for the new cover of Metropolis Magazine. I don’t interact with much AR these days so playing around with the cover via my iPhone and iPad definitely held my interest. While the cover is only a teaser I wish that I could have interacted more on screen. There’s icons that I would have liked to have been able to press or even a simple link to the newsstand issue. Even with that said it offers a glimpse of something much more interesting than a static cover often can be.
You can read more about the actual app on Metropolis site titled Augmented Possibility By Avinash Rajagopal.
