POST follows its critically acclaimed launch issue with Gravity, an extra-terrestrial exploration of the ways in which humanity has sought to transcend this invisible force that binds all of life.
Pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved on the iPad, POST Gravity opens with a groundbreaking, interactive 3D fashion story powered by infra-red technology in which users can distort, bend and flip the dimensions of model Iselin Steiro. A menswear story, The Man Who Fell To Earth by Jacob Sutton and Simon Foxton sees professional skydivers dressed in this season’s sharpest suits dance in the microgravity environment of a vertical wind tunnel, and Parisian super-store Colette select their Periodic Table of accessories for summer.
Other highlights include an exclusive film shot from the International Space Station recreating Yuri Gagarin’s maiden voyage through space, a lunar transmission of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata in Morse Code by Katie Paterson, Nicolas Provost’s transformation of Las Vegas into a shimmering jewel of a spaceship, a presentation on the dynamic between NASA’s designers and science fiction cinema, Todd Cole’s cinematic journey through the SpaceX hanger and a bespoke soundtrack by the celebrated sonic artist Scanner.

Beautiful and incredibly disappointing.
This app is beautiful. However, the vision of the present and future that it presents is devoid of people of color, except for one ad and one article on Japanese art. Mexico is shown, but it's a country with no people in it. People of European descent abound. And apparently the future is only about the wealthy, healthy, thin and self involved. What a wonderfully fascist future it is, in which anyone and everyone who might reject the consumerist model and/or the upper-class aesthetic of beauty has been eliminated from view. Pretty much everything is linked to the purchase of over designed and frivolously superfluous objects. The music seems to be unmoored from anything with a cultural resonance. This is an intensely beautiful and emotionally vacant app, and manages to be both magnificent and bland. What an amazing accomplishment.
Its 2012. We don't have flying cars but, we do have POST. Innovative, ground breaking, futuristic. You are fully immersed into their vision. What glossy isn't one big ad? While the few ads are nicely done, there is great intent and concept behind the whole magazine. Clever.
