Last weekend, the New York Times Magazine, ever worth watching and recently in the hands of art director Matt Willey – who also designed our issue with Chris Ware – forayed into new territories of virtual reality. The issue came with Google’s cardboard VR viewer that you can slide your smartphone into to access a virtual reality animation leading you into the world of three refugee children, whose biographies form the content of the magazine. A feature that works surprisingly well according to magCulture – or see for yourself. Gimmick or the future of print? Time will tell, but for now an interesting experiment with expanding the borders of print reportage.
