 AR Toys competition is awesome because…

Augmented Reality is a huge chance for every kind of app development. Merging real life and fictional storytelling is just the perfect concept for any kind of toy. I am very happy to learn more about the ideas and especially curious about the concepts the juniors hand in. By the way, app development is our most important new business field at KB&B – The Kids Group. Maybe I will be spotting some new talents?

In your words – what’s the potential in Augmented Reality for kids?

“Kids have a huge benefit when compared to adults: They are very curious and adapt to new technologies quickly and joyful. I believe that Augmented Reality can teach in a way that has not been possible before. Furthermore, AR has the ability to lift kid’s fantasy to new levels. I see a lot of potential in AR-apps.”

What would you like upcoming apps for kids to be like?

As with any kind of app, children application should also be technically high perform-ing?, entertaining and secure. It is self-evident that they may not implement sale-calls, since this in inappropriate for children – and, not to mention, illegal. They should ad-dress kids at their level: If the target group is preschoolers the app must operate with-out text. If it is for teenagers, then safe communication tools should be included. But most of all, I wish that the new concepts that come out of this competition are mind blowing, creative and fresh;In other words,something that we have never seen before. So, Good luck to all the competitors. I am excited to learn about your ideas.
