Popular Science has been around since 1872. It might come as no surprise, then, that the magazine that’s been celebrating science and technology for the general reader for that long might be one of the first that starts using an iPhone or iPad to link to videos and other interactive features.

Over the past six years, Popular Science has dedicated their June issue to the top inventors of the past year, publishing articles that explore the inventions and the inventors that created them. This year, they’ve released an interactive, universal iOS app that can be used in conjunction with the paper issue.

Once you’ve downloaded the app, simply aim the camera of your iPhone or iPad at a special icon on the pages of any of the inventor articles and the app will play back specially recorded videos with the inventors who explain their world-changing inventions. Slick, huh?

PopSci Interactive is a free, universal app and is available in the App Store now.
