Windy is what a pop-up book would look like in the digital age, if you were to combine it with IMAX audio.

— Gannon Burgett, The Industry


There’s little question Windy has been carefully crafted – she’s a beautiful thing, with some real talented artists and technologists working behind the scenes here.

Paul Sawers, The Next Web


The fact that you can hear in 3D over stereo headphones is truly amazing.
