Some years ago, not many people knew about augmented reality. However, with the increasing technological advancements, AR development is adding a fun element to the life of everyone, including, kids. In today’s world, children have become familiar with digital gadgets like smartphones, tablets and mobile phones right from an early age. Kids these days demand their own ‘screen time’ at home. It has become very difficult for parents to keep their children away from the screen. In order to make effective utilization of screen time, augmented reality can be merged with fun activities, games, and toys.
According to Statista, the global market size of augmented reality is all set to rise to above 198 billion USD by 2023.
What is Augmented Reality?
Augmented Reality (AR) is an advanced and immersive technology that helps to connect the digital world to the real world. It enhances the physical world by overlaying a computer generated digital layer which may be in the form of animations, graphics, videos, sounds and much more. AR development needs a physical object like a toy or a puzzle to create a virtual experience for kids. For example, if a child has a toy tiger, AR development enables the child to view the tiger how it appears to move in reality in the jungle or the forest. Indeed, with AR app development, just moving the AR app over the toy tiger is capable of bringing it to life on the screen. Using the computerized graphics, companies in AR development can make the tiger run and roar like it would do in real life.
