These augmented reality cards by Gizmo are changing the way well wishes are sent. Receiving a letter in the mail is a thoughtful gesture, although it may seem a little bit antiquated. Gizmo fuses traditional greeting cards with digital technology to secure greeting cards a spot in the future.

The cards feature Gizmo the robot, a lovable character who is able to send happy holidays, romantic love notes or say happy birthday. These cards make use of the DAQRI app and when a phone or tablet is used to view these cards, a 3D version of the robot comes to life. Since the experience is digital, all of these possibilities are packed into the same greeting card and are customizable based on the message you'd like to send.
