The Sun newspaper to publish 3D issue

the sun 3d.jpgThe Sun newspaper are gearing up to release a one-off 3D issue on June 5th. The special edition will feature colour ads and editorial,and, of course, their infamous Page 3 girl in 3D.

The issue will come with a pair of 3D glasses for readers to be able to properly see the special content, as well as a 3D World Cup fixtures chart, with the tournament set to start a week later.

Advertisers will have to pay a far higher premium to be featured in 3D in the newspaper.

Parent company News International have green-lighted a high-profile TV campaign to coincide with the run-up to the issue’s release, with circulation expected to increase by hundreds of thousands for the special edition.

    A bit gimmicky maybe but 3D print technology has moved on so much since the tacky holograms that came out in the 80s, anyone remember the really bad ones that appeared on the front of cereal boxes and the like. News Internationals interest in this can only result in wider exposure of this very much improved print format and hopefully the outcome will be a positive step forward. Anyway, now comes the shameless self selling, I am a 3D artist that has worked on various cutting edge digital holography projects and if you want to see at what stage this technology is at then feel free to view my latest project on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j1l_fvJfe84

    Last year I wrote a retro website to commemorate Hondas first entry into the Isle of Man TT Races in 1959 when 3D supplements came with newspapers, comics and magazines.

    Thanks for sharing. His music will continue to rock!
    I think you need a bit more of a story with this as this isn’t really a news story in its current form. Perhaps you could write about why you like Michael so much
    It is hard to say such a thing is clear.
