The famous singer David Bowie will return to the real world as part of an augmented reality app launching on January 8, 2019, which would have been his 72th birthday.
The app, which will be available on iOS and Android, serves as an expanded reality recreation of "David Bowie Ice", a tour art show celebrating Bowie's life and work.
Users can access more than 500 high-resolution scans of costumes, sketches, artwork and other memorabilia to look up in the physical space. The app will also feature 60 new artifacts recently added to the exhibition.
"Show it on your free time or jump directly to the things you love. Repeat as often as you want and save an item to your own collection in the app. This spectacular iteration of the iconic exhibition is yours forever," said Apple's website
Bowie fans have already got a taste of what the app's experience will show. Earlier this year New York Times published an enlarged reality specification at the exhibits featured in the exhibition, including the artist's flashball dress used during the Aladdin Sane 1973 tour and the clown suit was featured in the 1980s "Ash to Ashes" music video.
I remember 2016 beginning with a particularly silly note, with David Bowie who goes away from liver cancer on January 10, just a few days after his birthday. Therefore I expect that particular Kindly appreciate the arrival of this app.
While fans can always return the artist through their music and video, enhanced reality gives them another dimension through which they can relive the artist's work.
