Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
PopSci Interactive allows your smart phone or tablet to recognize images. It then augments your view of the real world with videos, music and 3D animations. Wherever you see the PS icon throughout the magazine just open the app and point at the page to unlock virtual content.
EASY STEPS TO ENHANCE YOUR READING EXPERIENCE:
Download the app
Open and point your device at any image on the page where you see the PS icon
Watch as the image comes to life
Double tap at any time to enter full screen and then you can pull away from the image
Tap any buttons you see to find out more or link to social media
I think it's a nice addition to the magazine, a supplemental of sorts. Open the app and face the camera at a page with the [PS] symbol. it'll load the video. then u can double tap the vid to go fullscreen (so u can put down the magazine and enjoy the vid). If u don't go fullscreen, u have to keep the camera pointed at the page of the mag.
Not very useful
This tries to be some sort of augmented reality app combined with an interactive reading tool. Instructions are poor, and half the interactive content in the magazines are advertisements. Getting the magazine and phone in position where it can accurately see the image but also let's you actually see the phone is challenging. I used it for 5 mins and deleted
Neat to discover another layer inside a magazine I subscribe to. Only drawback, as another person mentioned, is you can't pause videos. But very cool anyway.
