RFID Used For Amusement – Magazine
The world’s first web-connected magazine has just hit the shelves!
Amusement is a funky magazine all about gaming and style.
The latest issue is out now and it’s gone all RFID!
On page 2 of the mag you’ll get an RFID (Radio frequency identification) tag.
Whack the page up to an RFID scanner and hey presto! – you get access to a video, several â€œinteractiveâ€ apps from artists and a 3D video.
Each issue of the â‚¬9 (Â£8.50) web-connected magazine comes with its own email address so contact with the writers is quick and easy – how interactive do you want it?
I think this sounds like an interesting idea but would have to see it in action before I can say whether or not I feel it’s worth just short of a tenner.
Could this save the print business?
Is this nothing but a desperate attempt to bring people back?
It’s on sale at the Barbican in London so if I can escape the office tomorrow I might just nip across the road for a gander :p
