For the 50th anniversary of Sesame Street, the Sesame Street Yourself app is lanching as a fun way for young fans to immerse themselves in a world with their favorite characters.
Thanks to augmented reality technology from app developer Weyo, kids' facial features and movements are recognized with great detail. As such, kids are able to transform themselves with masks and costumes—and see Elmo's mouth moving just in time with their own or watch Cookie Monster devour cookies at the same time they pretend to eat.
Inside the app, there are plenty of Sesame Street videos to discover, along with dress-up games, crazy costumes and interactive content to inspire active play. The free-to-download app shares a safe experience for kids that's free from ads.
