Electronic Love – Augmented Reality 12″ Vinyl & CD

Electronic Love is the 2010 music album by La Melodia for which I did the concept and design. When held in front of a webcam the empty studio on the cover is filled with Melodee and I.N.T., who appear with movement and sound. Within this a QR code also pops up, which in turn can be scanned with your phone. As far as we know it was the first album cover to use (very rudimentary) Augmented Reality in this way.

Also, scanning the back barcode with the Stickybits app gave you this thank you video.
