GameStarDE: AR We Having Fun Yet?

With a circulation of over 100,000 copies, Europe’s best-selling PC Games magazine will highlight this month’s issue with brand new Augmented content for their tech-savvy audience. GameStarDE is just one of many magazines and newspapers that have used junaio to enhance their print articles and media.

As you may have already determined, the video is in German- but I’m sure if you watched long enough you heard things like “Augmented Reality”, “Deus Ex” and “Diablo”, and saw the examples of what happens when you hold your phone over the magazine. The great thing about augmenting a publication that covers video games is that the reader is going to be treated to some very cool additional media involving some of this year’s hottest PC Games- and no one in the industry can get over how awesome it is that the plot of Deus Ex revolves around augmentations- not even the staff of GameStarDE:

Adam Jensen of Deus Ex: Human Revolution would be proud of us: where the cyborg’s body is fully packed with augmentation, we have similarly augmented our own issue: With an “augmented reality”-enabled mobile phone you can see additional pictures and videos in GameStar 10/2010. Discover! Have fun!

The GameStarDE junaio channel was developed by Augmented Minds, one of our first junaio Certified Developers. With over 5000 registered junaio developers, we both appreciate and look for the original and interactive content that they bring to our platform. More importantly, this is yet another fantastic example of how magazines, publishers, and print can benefit from adding additional 3-D and digital content to their publications. It’s great to be able to watch related videos on internet news sites, but I can’t begin to tell you how nice it is to read a paper in the morning and know that you have access to a host of digital information right there in front of you.

Many thanks to Augmented Minds for another great AR experience, and a congratulations to GameStarDE for thinking outside the box. Check out the links for more info (Google Chrome will translate the page for you), and be sure to watch the amusing video.

    Metaio and their junaio augmented reality browser are busy working with partners to change how we interact with print. Once the Coke zero advertisement has been identified by the junaio platform the advertisement comes to life with additional content providing the viewer with a richer experience..The Coke zero campaign is the latest in a series of high profile augmented reality campaigns from Metaio. Previous campaigns have included an augmented reality stamp for the UK and a special edition of the Sueddeutsche Zeitung s supplement magazine that was distributed to over 500k homes in Germany..Some day all print will be like this..
