This is really cool. It looks expensive as shit though. I don’t see an immediate demand for it either. That looks like it costs along the same lines as a commercial/short film for one of those fancy vodka or car companies. I don’t see many magazines (even the upper echelon ones) having the change to dump into stuff like this. It’s like a concept car: looks really cool, totally impractical and an idealized version of what the future holds.
What do you think? Am I being cynical or is it safe to assume that everyone in publishing is on the brink of financial oblivion?
