Storytelling AR Apps

The Wonderscope App Lets Children Visualize an Amazing Story

— November 16, 2018 — Tech
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.
Trend Themes
1. Augmented Reality Storytelling - Augmented reality apps are merging the digital and physical worlds to create immersive storytelling experiences for children.
2. Interactive Play Scripts - Apps like Wonderscope are allowing children to engage with stories on a whole new level by becoming active participants in the script.
3. User-generated Content - The development of an open platform and content creation tools is enabling storytellers to create and share their own AR stories.
Industry Implications
1. Education - AR storytelling apps have the potential to revolutionize the way children learn and engage with educational content.
2. Entertainment - The entertainment industry can leverage AR storytelling apps to create engaging and interactive experiences for children that blur the lines between digital and physical worlds.
3. Technology - The development and advancement of augmented reality technology is crucial for the growth and innovation of AR storytelling apps.
