World’s Most Beautiful 3D Magazine for Mobile Phones and Tablets

August 18th, 2011 · 5 Comments · Anaglyph Glasses

World’s Most Beautiful (WMB) 3D is an ambitious new magazine that is going to be available on print in 3D and online for mobile devices such as Android-based smartphones and iPhone, as well as for Android-based tablets and Apple’s iPad in both 2D and 3D. The mobile applications for accessing the magazine from Android-based devices as well as for the iPhone and iPad are already available in the Android Market and Apple’s AppStore respectively. WMB actually is a 3D magazine with the 2D version being there just for the sakes of “backwards compatibility” as not everyone is yet 3D-ready and here by 3D I’m referring to anaglyph 3D made for anaglyph glasses with red-cyan color filters. The magazine’s first issue is just out and it features Kim Kardashian as a cover girl, but the magazine is not only about models and celebrities, it covers topics such as travel, gadgets and technology and so on, so it seems promising so far. But don’t get the wrong idea it will be most for the photos in 3D and not as much for the content in the form of text as the text is after all still in 3D and it won’t look that cool even if it is made in 3D as would the photos of beautiful girls or expensive cars.

There were a lot of newspapers and magazines all over the world that went out with single issues made in mostly or entirely in 3D, but this appears to be the first commercial magazine that starts as a completely 3D publication and will continue to be made entirely in 3D. Will this turn out to be a successful strategy or not is yet to be seen, but if it succeeds we are sure to see more publications to follow this trend. So let us see how things go from now on with the WMB 3D magazine now after the first issue is already out…

    “This app is incompatible with your LG Optimus 3D.

    “Ambitious”, “available”, “compatible”… those are just words… :-)

    Maybe they are still not ready with support for actual 3D-capable smartphones… ;)

    Although it seems to be a regional limitation of some kind and that is really a stupid thing to do, especially considering the fact that outside of US you probably won’t be able to find the printed issue of the magazine anyway.

    This is really fascinating! It’s cool to see an old idea still find new ways to go mainstream

    I wish they would not limit themselves with compatibility issues
