Magazines On The iPad Could Be Stunning Visual Treats (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Magazines, including Wired, Glamour, Vanity Fair, and the New Yorker, are prepping content for the iPad, with many predicting Apple's tablet device could be a boon for the publications' flagging circulation.

Wired released a demo of its iPad edition (see it here) and although the graphics impress, a video from Alexx Henry Photography pushes the boundaries even further.

Alexx Henry's concept for an iPad edition of Viv Mag presents an interactive, multimedia feast that seems part magazine, part movie. Although the clip seems too complex (and expensive, we imagine) to become standard fare, the clip nonetheless offers a look at what might be possible in bringing magazines to Apple's new device.

A post on Alexx Henry's blog offers some background on the video:

Together with co-directors Cory Strassburger and Ming Hsiung, we produced a motion magazine cover and feature spread for Viv Mag - an all digital magazine, which would allow us to create content that will be able to live on the iPad and other tablet devices where digital magazines can live.

Check out the iPad version of a Viv Mag article titled, 'Your Worst Sex Fears: Banished!' in the video below, then take a look at how it was created.
