We had talking flyers last year in the MO-Sen race. Tech is here. Expensive though and worth it sometimes.

Very cool.

I have seen a similar in the past, with a BB device embedded in the magazine

Awesome stuff! Wonder if geeks will start collecting these magazines like Comic books to nerds. They will only be making limited prints of this...

It will only get cheaper. This will be common occurence in fifteen years (if magazines still exist).

It's weird, in the video they open up the 1/14 issue (based on the cover), but as they flip through it, the articles are from the 12/13 issue. I didn't see the ad in the 12/13 issue.

Becuase there is no 1/14 issue yet. So they used the old issue to demo it

I love this chochma.  Compound the effectiveness of your ad by advertising your advertisement (similar to superbowl ads).  Also, wouldn't be surprised if Wired gave them a freebie on this one.  People will be buying the mag just for the ad, not to mention the publicity Wired is getting in these videos.
If you don't care why would you comment?
