Marvel wants you to hulk out your comics with new AR app Video Transcript
Hi. I'm Seth Rosenblatt. Welcome to Tap That App. Today, I'm gonna show you a really cool app from Marvel Comics, Marvel's new augmented reality. It's kinda like DVD extras for your comic book. I'm gonna jump in. The app picks up on the image and shows you some predetermined content based on what Marvel's Editors want you to see. Other extras include Marvel Editors and Marvel Writers giving commentary on the comic book as you flip through it. World's mightiest heroes are the Avengers. The children of the Adam, the X-men. In addition, you'll be able to see certain panels from a pencil art all the way through to the colored stage. So I think the extras are actually really cool but it's a little awkward to hold the iPad and read the comic at the same time waiting for the activation icon to show up. Other than that though, I think it's a pretty cool idea and it's a pretty good start. The first comic that this is going to work with is going to be Avengers Versus X-men Number 1 coming out the 1st week of April. For Tap That App, I'm Seth Rosenblatt.
