WIRED’s new tablet application could trigger a revolution in the way readers interact with magazines.
The application allows readers to physically interact with print content, enhancing reader experience in ways that weren’t possible before. Articles come alive with the touch of a finger, launching videos, 3D animations, and even allowing 360-degree views of photos and products. Readers have quick access to all articles using the dual access navigation and can share articles through social media within seconds. As designers, we’re anticipating what the future of print can become as magazines incorporate digital technology. 2D photos with captions could soon be a thing of the past.
