"The Michael Jackson Opus -- AUGMENTED REALITY

Post by MJ_Fan_For_40_yrs on Mon Aug 17, 2009 11:18 am

I found this on the Today show web site. If you follow this link and look under "The Official Michael Jackson Opus" video, sort of half way down the page on the right-hand side. It's apparently a book w/ tons of pictures about the life of Michael Jackson. The book on the show is a mock-up; it'll be out sometime in December -- it's not fully written yet. The publisher, Carl Fowler, is saying that this book is the ultimate testament to everything about Michael Jackson.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032084/ns/entertainment

"It's a project Michael had been working on just days before his death." Fowler says Michael looked happy, fine just three days before his death when he saw him.
"The challenge with the book is to tell the story in a way it's never been told before."
THEN Fowler starts talking about this TECHNOLOGY that's never been done in publishing before. He says, "This is the 1st Book, if you will," and he called the technology AUGMENTED REALITY. Opus Augmented Reality.
This technology, he says, links traditional media -- paper, pictures in a book -- w/ 21st century technology.
He then holds a pic of Micheal up to the laptop they have in the studio there, and it's like we're seeing a video of Michael dancing along w/ the audio/audience!
It's amazing........
Just thought I'd share! Very Happy

Wow Michael was a busy boy leading up to June 25th! Makes you wonder how a sickly frail man who couldn't even feed himself had the energy to do such things doesn't it? Razz

I wouldn't image Christmas Day because it's a national holiday but maybe in the lead up to Christmas. All recording artists do it now because they know it will be a big seller in time for Christmas. I guess time will tell!

Oh and as much as I love Michael I couldn't justify spending $165 on a book. Sorry!

Remember Michael is an innovator, he always did the first of everything and he said that he wanted to do the most innovative things possible, the most cutting edge, never-seen-before, new, imaginative things.

This is a Tweet from David Blaine, Aug. 19th:

CBS and pepsi bring video ads to printed page http://su.pr/AoagN3


It's a tweet re the same technology as this book.

Now, why would David Blaine be tweeting this??

There's a connection....
