If you haven’t heard of Meural, then the Meural Canvas may be something you’re going to want to pay attention to, photographers! The company has been around since 2014 and making art installations interactive and fun for artists everywhere–and that doesn’t just apply to hipsters. What’s special about the Meural Canvas is that you can think of it as a large sort of iPad but instead of responding to your interactions via the screen, all you need to do is wave your hand and swipe in order for the next photo to come up. That’s significantly tougher to explain about while reading a blog post, but like all other materialized art, you need to experience it in person.
The Macallan collaborated recently with legendary photographer Steven Klein in their 6th Masters of Photography edition of Macallan Single Malt Scotch Whisky. The brand has previously worked with Annie Leibowitz, Elliott Erwitt, and Mario Testino; but what’s perhaps most incredible about this particular collaboration is the announcement’s interactive video–which admittedly, I recommend viewing from a desktop for the best experience.
Those of you who like cats may want to check out the big boys, and girls! National Geographic has recently released an interactive feature with Lions. You can scroll through various sections and check out mini video clips in almost a similar style to Vine or Instagram–but without the filters. Instead you’ll get some crystal clear footage of lions being themselves.
Seriously, your lunch break will be significantly more exciting with this.
