Jump on board for our pixel-popping, mind-bending experiment in new multimedia mechanics. Augmented reality is one of a number of new technologies that are going to download into our daily lives next year. So we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see what AR can do. And though we mightn’t be the first to turn AR tricks – we were waiting for the technology to catch up with our ambitions – we like to think our tricks are more elegant and more useful than previous AR efforts you might have seen out there.
Using AR is, thankfully, not rocket science. Simply fire up your computer, activate your webcam and come back to www.wallpaper.com/ar. When you see one of the black and white graphics (right) in the latest issue W*130 out this Thursday the 10th of December, hold your copy in front of the webcam (taking care to keep the box free of stray digits), wiggle, twist and watch Wallpaper* grow a whole new dimension.
