Wonderscope, a new augmented reality app for Apple devices, lets children visualize a story thanks to clever world-bending features. Designed as the first AR app to tackle storytelling, Wonderscope overlays images on a screen interacting the actual world around the reader. The app currently features two stories: 'A Brief History of Stunts by Astounding People', which features a wind-walking granny, and 'Little Red the Inventor', a spin on the classic fairytale. The app also adds another layer of interactivity as it tasks viewers with coming up with their own short lines in the play's script.
While Wonderscope currently only has two stories, the hope is that storytellers will soon use the open platform. Future additions will also be made by the company behind Wonderscope, but a development tool will also be released to allow creators to make their own content on the platform.
