As everyone knows we have Colors and Shapes next up in the pipeline for AR Flashcards but also in development is Basic Math!! This is our number one requested subject and we have some cool ideas for the this that we are excited about. Jesiey, our 3d artist, has come up with a great look for our numbers using our favorite theme, animals! We are working on addition, subtraction, division and multiplication! At this time we are working on 0-10 equations (1+1, 1+2, 1+3, etc.) for the Kindergarten level but we welcome suggestions on what you would like to see!

User Created Flash Cards Announcement!

One of the things we are very excited about that we are adding to AR Flashcards 3.0 is User Created Flash Cards! This means you can take one of our animals and use them to augment your own flash card! The biggest use we see for this is having your child draw their own artwork for them to augment! They will have a blast drawing a picture of a penguin and then having our penguin pop up over their artwork! This is just one of MANY things being added to our upcoming release of AR Flashcards 3.0 that we hope to have ready by June ’14. More announcements will be made in the coming weeks and months! Stay tuned! Click for Demo...

Colors and Shapes Announcement!!

Posted by on Nov 21, 2013 in News

Colors and Shapes Announcement!!

This past Tuesday night co-founder, Heath Mitchell, announced that our next content pack for AR Flashcards will be Colors and Shapes! He made the announcement on the awesome educational podcast the 2 Guys Show! He had a blast talking to the guys about augmented reality, Twitter and the fact that Heath doesn’t have much time to listen to music anymore due to his three kids! We have been deep into the design of colors and shapes and we decided it would be fun to go with a circus theme. Each shape will have our mascot, Augmonkey or Auggie for short, doing a circus act with one of the shapes. On the top of the screen there will be buttons for six colors (blue, red, green, yellow, orange and violet). When you tap the color not only will you hear the name of the color but you will also see the shape change color before your very eyes!! We wanted to find an interesting and fun way to teach colors and shapes to young kids with the power of augmented reality and we think we have done it!! We will be adding colors and shapes to our original app AR Flashcards, but we haven’t decided on how it will be delivered (in-app purchase, back to paid app, etc..). Once we decide we will definitely be letting you know here and on Twitter.  If you want to help us test this and future AR Flashcards content then head over to our beta signup page...
