Magazine in the Future, Complete with LCD Screen

This time I want to write something light but still nice to be read. This hub related with technology and I think we have to learn about technology. We can’t deny about this. We all surrounded with all things related with technology. I wouldn’t mention this one by one. But if you read my hub about magazine, you will see a lot of surprises if you read this hub. Personally, I just say “wow” and “wow”.

We live in modern era, we may predict what happen next in the future. I thought everything depend on technology, I hope you agree with me. This also happen with the magazine in this hub. We can see how these magazines looks so amazing when technology took part. Everything looks modern. I know this was a special edition. But this could be an idea as for the future magazine or it could be better than before. Curious……please continue to read!

“Successful Farming”, LCD in magazine

Wow….I had never imagine about this and I want to say that I had never seen like this in person. One of the oldest agricultural magazine, “Successful Farming” in the newest edition in August, 2010 has made the evolution. This is special edition where we can find the video through LCD. On a page, we will see a small LCD screen which will display ads from certain companies.

The appearance of advertising in a video is much more interactive than ads in print and pictures, right. So far, the magazine only done a limited testing and it seems like not all the August edition attached this LCD screen. Just look at the video, we may have a good imagination what will happen with the future magazine.

Neo2 Limited Magazine

Other technology put on the magazine came from Neo2 magazine. This magazine use 2.4 LCD screen, rechargeable (via USB)and it also reusable. So that readers can upload any video on it once played the spot. Based on the information, more than 2.500 copies sold in the market. This device has a memory 512 MB and also a Canon EOS adapter for MBP-1 45 minute video. But other great news is this edition sold with the normal price of the publication. Maybe this is a good way to promote a product, right. The advertising support is used in Spain.

Grazia Magazine with Augmented Reality technology

Here's a new way to create a magazine that can be used not only to be read but can see other things in 3D through the computer. Through Augmented Reality (AR) technology, a magazine called Grazia has made the first edition that combines the AR technology. With AR technology, the readers with the help of a webcam and internet connection can see beyond what is being displayed in magazines. This is amazing technology that out of my imagination. For example, if you're looking at the model, by showing photo model in front of the webcam, it will automatically connect to a page that will display the model in 3 dimensions in the computer.

Not only that, by moving the hands in front of a magazine or a webcam, we can also rotate the model in real time and is still much amazing things we can do with AR technology. But before you do all that things, you have to go to their website at http://www.graziadaily.co.uk/3D

Magazine with 3D issue!

There may be questions about AR technology directly to their website, this is where the greatness of AR technology where we can combine something happened on the web with what we are doing at the computer. Maybe if you watch the video below you will be more clearly.

Just for information, Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that was created to combine information from a computer into real life or the computer can provide information in accordance with demand in real time.

Above of all, maybe there is a policy in limitation the usage of paper in the future, because everything is accessible via the Internet. Online magazine will be more dominant in the future with a variety of applications offered by vendors. We are as reader has many choices. Tablet computer like iPad as will be more used widely in accessing information. Touch screen as a feature to view the page and move from page to another page. But I wish the best for us. What do you think about this magazine? Let’s discuss together!..........

I think technology is simply a part of life. Never the less, I find it hard to keep up.Someone has suggested that I put my short stories in an ebook.Now I have to study ebooks and see how I can do this. I am still trying to figure out google and hubpages.

But technology is part of life and it is better to learn it than to fight it.

Thanks, carriethomson for coming and remind us about harry potter movie. This was just a limited edition and of course this technology cost much. Most of them for promotion, because the video contain advertisement. Good to see you again. Cheers...

I think the magazine and newspaper industries are already suffering a little due to everyone getting their info online - this new technology will probably hurt them even more.

Nice info.... There are so many interesting things happening around us every day especially techs and gadgets. If you stop reading about techs for a day, you will be fallen behind the next day. Glad that you are sharing these info through hubs!

Apparently, some manufacturer are already developing foldable screens and i believe that soon enough, we will be seeing magazines with full page lcd advertising while keeping the same thickness and foldability.

Wow is definitely the right word for this new technology, pras. Newspapers today are a sliver of their former selves. Advertisers have left them in the dust to concentrate on online advertising and social networks as well as other media.

Thanks for helping to bring us up to date with your research my friend.

My friend, cari jean. Thanks for coming and share your thought about this topic. I agree with you about the offline business of magazine company, they still need paper to produce magazine daily. With the existence of online magazine, they will probably hurt them even more, like you said before. But I hope the best. ~prasetio

Hi Pras, i'm the practical guy in our family whilst my wife and daughters do all the techno things. I have just noticed a few talking ad's coming on to hubpages which i find annoying when I'm trying to read a hub. Not these on this hub of course as i can click on them when I'm ready. The world moves at a fast pace these days. We have recently purchased lcd TVs and i am finding them difficult to fathom out. Mainly because i only watch a few things per week. These new ad's look effective, but will they become invasive and thus annoying. Probably yes is the answer. But at least you have given us an early warning. Thanks teacher.

My brother, attemptedhumour. Thanks for coming to this hub and share your self experience about technology. Sometimes ads looks too annoying, but as the same time they give us an information which we didn't knew before. I just say it could become worst if they persuade us to buy their product while we enjoy reading an article. But, everything goes while if we see this wisely. Nice to see you again. Cheers..

Big hugs,

Amazing what technology can do. It makes the traditional form of magazine reading even more obsolete. I don't read the newspapers anymore too and now this new technology makes magazine reading even more exciting. Rated up.

Interesting...and they said the Internet would do away with printed media...not likely if technology can be incorporated in the ways you have demonstrated. We are living in some wonderful times in which the electronics media is virtually changing by the second...soon you may be able to send me an email simply by thinking about it. Wow! WB

My friend, Wayne. Thanks for give your time to visit this hub and leave nice comment about this topic. It hard for me to say who is the right and who is the wrong. I thought we just enjoy this technology come to our life without any political interference. We just need something good to be enjoyed. Personally, magazine with the paper (original magazine) and online magazine have the same purpose to teach and educate us with useful information. I hope we can see this wisely. Good to see you again, buddy. Have a nice weekend!

Blessing and hugs, prasetio

My grandmother used to say that she was amazed that she lived to see the first airplane fly and then see man set foot on the moon. If she were still alive I wonder what she would think of all the innovative technology whizzing past us these days? It is hard to keep abreast of all the latest and greatest. Thanks for a peek at what magazines of the future will look like. Up and useful votes!

My friend, Peggy. Thank you very much for coming and share your beautiful memory about your grandmother.

As a young man in the modern world. I just keep up date and see what happen next. I hope you enjoy this hub. Have a good day! Cheers....
