100 Inventive Augmented Reality Products

From Hi-Tech Spectacles to Interactive Picture Books

— January 4, 2014 — Tech
These augmented reality products manage to revitalize products that are going by the wayside, like printed greeting cards and bring new excitement to objects you think couldn’t possibly be fun, like bedsheets.

Augmented reality is totally changing the way we interact with objects in the real world. With apps like Taggar, users are even able to “like” and “tag” items around them. This unlocks a huge potential for anything to be turned into a game or an interactive experience. This is already being taken advantage of to enhance games and music with special augmented reality-enabled headsets and earphones.

Augmented reality products are huge for kids as well. Companies like Zappie have turned stickers, bibs and other objects that would normally be static into fun, interactive and educational experiences with an app.
