Esquire's December Issue Will Feature Augmented Reality

Esquire's December Issue Will Feature Augmented Reality

The December issue of Esquire magazine has a little geeky extra built right in. It features augmented reality technology on its cover and several inside pages, meaning that when you hold those pages up to a webcam, they'll "come alive" in 3D, with flying text and images.

Esquire teases the feature on their cover, calling it a "Living, breathing, moving, talking magazine." It's not the magazine's first geeky cover; for their 75th anniversary issue, they featured a blinking cover using e-ink. While the augmented reality concept isn't new, it's a first for magazines, and I think it's a pretty cool update to a traditional print medium. The augmented reality issue will be available at newsstands on Nov. 9.
