David Bowie’s memory to live forever, all thanks to technology

Singer David Bowie to be immortalized with a mobile app.

Legendary English rock singer and actor David Bowie died on 10th January 2016 but his memory will live forever because Bowie’s life and times will be integrated into a mobile app for both iOS and Android users.

The “Davie Bowie Is” exhibition is being adapted into a mobile app. The app will basically be an augmented reality version of Bowie’s career and will be released on January 8th, 2019 which would have been his 72nd birthday. The app experience will feature the costumes, handwritten lyrics, photos, and other artifacts included in the physical exhibit, as well as additional items exclusive to the app. The app will mirror museums’ presentation of “David Bowie Is” through audio and three-dimensional renderings.

The “David Bowie Is” show opened in March 2013 at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and ended in July 2018 at the Brooklyn Museum in New York City. Over its 5 year run, it stopped at 12 museums around the world and attracted over 2 million visitors.

Earlier this year it was announced that the rock legend’s 2000 Glastonbury headline performance is to be released in full for the first time. The greatest hits set from the late performer is considered to be one of the festival’s best ever Sunday night closing shows and it will be available from November 30 on DVD, CD, Vinyl and digitally.
