For the occasion, in fact, ” Augmented Reality Focus ” was developed, an app available for free on the AppStore and Google Play, thanks to which readers will be able to explore the contents of the paper magazine in an innovative way with navigable 360 ° photos, videos in 4K, render 3D.
By launching the Augmented Reality apps and framing the Focus page, the images come alive, creating a new experience that can be used from your smartphone and tablet anytime and anywhere, transforming the newspaper into a truly innovative device. The application was created ad hoc by ETT.
“What we experience in the August issue – underlines the director Jacopo Loredan – is a new concept of magazine, unique in its kind and never tried before. Through augmented reality, the newspaper overcomes the physical limits of the medium to explore new territories and give the reader an exclusive experience of using the contents that from static come alive with innovative interactions and experiences “.
In support of the launch of the initiative, a campaign has been planned on Mediaset, Sky, Discovery, and Viacom television networks, on the main Italian radio stations, on Mondadori weekly and in newspapers.
