The Wire Rewind app
Download the Wire Rewind app to transform the cover of this month’s issue into a unique audiovisual experience
The Wire Rewind app uses augmented reality to totally transform the cover of this issue of The Wire.
Just download the app, then point your phone’s camera at the cover to access and explore extra dimensions of sound and graphic design – and the more you explore the more you will discover new combinations of 3D images and multichannel audio.
The issue’s cover has been designed by the magazine’s art director Ben Weaver, with sound by artist Patrick Ward. The Wire Rewind app has been developed specially for the issue by Tibor Udvari and Philippe Karrer of Spheres Studio.
NB The Wire Rewind app functions most effectively with a copy of the printed magazine laid flat in good lighting conditions. But it can also be used with an image of the magazine cover on screen. If you are a digital subscriber, we recommend that you print out the cover using your Exact Editions Wire app. Alternatively download a pdf of the cover at thewire.co.uk/ rewind2017app where you will also find more details and information on the project.
Download the app for free from the App Store or Google Play – just search for “Wire Rewind”.
