Take a Look at Augmented Reality in Dr. Seuss’ Book
From Aunt Annie’s alligator, to zizzer-zazzer-zuzz, the new buzz in the world of Dr. Suess is a mobile app that helps bring one of his books to life with the help of augmented reality technology.
Developed by Dr. Seuss Studios, a subsidiary of Sugar, a creative studio that focuses on the use of AR and VR technology in the United Kingdom, the app, Dr. Seuss’s ABC – An Amazing AR Alphabet, encourages the learning of the ABCs for children everywhere by recreating each page of the book in 3-D with animated characters, read-alouds, fun sounds and other surprises.
The app features three modes: story mode, where the user can trace each letter with the help of character animations projected on the book through their mobile device; A to Z mode, to go directly to a specific letter and interact with additional characters; and sandbox mode, that allows the user to choose a character to interact directly with through an AR experience.
While Dr. Seuss’s ABC – An Amazing AR Alphabet was only released in March of 2020, it has gained numerous five-star reviews from users who have downloaded it on both iOS and Android.
“Dr. Seuss’s ABC – An Amazing Alphabet…based on the bestselling book…encourages children to learn their ABCs in a fun, engaging, and unexpected way,” notes the studio in the app’s description.
