Someday World is the latest release from ambient composer Brian Eno and Underworld front-man Karl Hyde. The vinyl edition of Eno/Hyde offers a very special enhancement thanks to an augmented reality app that treats the album as a stage, floating a vibrant collection of abstract virtual cities just above the surface of the disc.

A collaboration between Warp Records, interactive designer, Lukasz Karluk and design studio, Toby and Pete, the Eno/Hyde app pairs a very traditional audio medium with some outstanding 21st century technology.

Check out the app in action over on YouTube. More from the Cult of Mac.
