Michael Jackson: delivering newspapers in the future even after death

Posted By on Thu, Sep 24, 2009 at 8:09 PM

A British publishing company will put out Michael Jackson's opus (aka biography) in December, and while that's all well and good for fans, what's even more interesting is the "opus augmented reality" technology the book features.

Newspapers and magazines may be struggling to reconcile the print world with the digital world in the face of diminishing revenue, but it's entirely possible that those two will eventually collide at some point in the future thanks to this augmented reality technology.

CEO Kraken Opus Carl Fowler went on the Today Show to talk about the Official Michael Jackson Opus, which Jackson himself was overseeing until days before his death. For the really cool part, start paying close attention right around 2 minutes and 25 seconds in.
