Imagine your favorite book came to life on your floor and asked you to play a part in the story! Wonderscope is an iOS app for kids that uses augmented reality to transform ordinary spaces into extraordinary stories. Through your Wonderscope, you can see the story take place all around you, whether you open the app in your room or outdoors. Read your lines aloud to engage with and talk to characters, and help them solve problems along the way.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT WONDERSCOPE
New York Magazine:
"For parents with younger kids, I’ve got at least one thing that could assuage some of that guilt about screen time: Wonderscope."
"What if you could give your child an iPad for an hour and not feel guilty about it?... an app that makes kids smile and feel confident as they read absolutely feels like a win."
"Because kids look through the iPad to see the story on the other side, Wonderscope won’t close them off to the outside world."
"Wonderscope, a new augmented reality app for Apple devices, reminded me of that childhood feeling, of a kid's imagination ignited by a story."
"The future of storytelling is happening all around us — we just have to look through the right lens to see it."
Common Sense Media:
"It feels almost magical to watch as suddenly animated characters and scenery pop up all around you as part of ... engaging stories."
GROWING LIBRARY OF INCREDIBLE STORIES
"Wonder's Land Ringmaster Wanted"
- You’re late! Wonder, The Ringmaster of Wonder’s Land, wants you to take over his job. There’s just too much magic in Wonder’s Land and he’s had enough! But before you can take the job, he needs your help getting everyone ready for the carnival’s big opening. Use your voice to help Wonder round everyone up, and teach him a thing or two about magic along the way.
"A Brief History of Amazing Stunts by Astounding People"
- Take part in three of history’s most impossible stunts and meet the real people that made them happen: Betty Bromage, an 88-year old grandmother that stood on the wings of an airborne bi-plane; Helen Gibson, Hollywood’s first stuntwoman; and Charles Blondin, the first person to tightrope walk across Niagara Falls.
"Little Red the Inventor"
- Pair up with Red, a modern-day Little Red Riding Hood who has added “inventor” to her resume. Together they solve tricky situations to evade the Big Bad Wolf, using their voices to stand up for what’s right, and their smarts to become heroes in this new take on a classic fairy tale.
