Just two months ago, the editors of CYBR Magazine ripped up the plan for their fifth issue and started over.
They could see that the viral outbreak we all are currently coming to terms with was going to become an epidemic, and they wanted to investigate and reflect on what the future could look like.
THIS is the result — 100 pages of technologists, scientists and artists all contributing in their own way to combat the outbreak and help others during shutdown. Featuring FN MEKA, CHARLI COHEN, NIKITA REPLYANSKI, THOMAS WEBB, RTFKT, SILICA, HIROTO IKEUCHI, MOTH3R, ENGWIND, BRAD BUILDS, plus our investigations into how technology is fighting the outbreak, viruses that actually help us, what the future could look like in a viral world, and much more.
The first 25 pre-orders get a free CYBR x SILICA 30 x 40 Poster.
CYBR MAGAZINE IS STILL DELIVERING WORLDWIDE DURING THE OUTBREAK. PRE-ORDER NOW TO MAKE SURE YOU RECEIVE A COPY.
The world is a daunting place right now whether for healthcare or economic reasons, but for this issue we didn’t want to dwell on fear, we wanted to celebrate the talent of technologists, scientists and artists who are all producing some of their best ever work to combat the outbreak and help us all come to terms with country wide shutdowns.
We could be looking at one of the biggest technological and cultural shifts in a generation. A future that might make most science-fiction seem closer than ever before. Virtual reality, digital expression through skins and avatars, autonomy and Universal Basic Income all have a part to play in our new future as we all become more interconnected in new ways.
CYBR X SILICA ON ‘VIRAL SURVEILLANCE’
Code Green Travel Freely, Yellow or Red Report Immediately.
For ISSUE_05, CYBR Magazine teamed up with artist SILICA to create a poster bringing to life a cyberpunk vision of the slogan posted around Chinese cities related to the Alipay app tracking citizen’s whereabouts due to the Coronavirus. “Green Code Travel Freely, Yellow or Red Report Immediately.” If your Alipay app turns red you are unable to pay to get on public transport, or for food, locked out of areas in the city, forcing you to stay at home.
These are rarer than Marty McFly’s Nike Air Mag’s
