Did you know that an ant can lift up to 50 times its own body weight? How about that Capuchin monkeys are able to use tools and recognize themselves in a mirror? The animal kingdom is wild, whacky, and incontestably fascinating, and for kids with active imaginations, learning about different species of animals and insects can get them hooked! While a trip to the zoo is ideal for a fun and educational day out, why not bring the zoo to you for a fun and educational day in?
Experience animal life through the magic of AR
Scanning any of the alphabetical animal flashcards (purchasable from the Octagon Studio homepage) brings them to life through your device’s screen along with a voice over stating its name. Move your camera in all directions around the card to see the animal up close and from different angles, and enjoy the unique animations and sound effects that accompany it. You can even place multiple cards together to have them all pop onto the screen at once – your very own pint-sized zoo!
Learn fun and interesting animal facts
Tapping the three horizontal lines icon on the top-right brings up the complete animal screen, where selecting any of the animals brings up info about them. Here you can learn about each animal’s personality, quirks, and more as well as switch between 2D, 3D, and 4D modes.
A number of cards can even be combined – try placing the banana card close to the monkey and watching it scurry across to grab a snack, the elephant grab some munchies from the grass card, or more fun combinations! This kind of active education is perfect to keep kids stimulated and eager to learn – who knows, you might even learn a fair bit yourself!
