Pandas AR on Yakables

Ages: 6 - 12Developer: Conversive

Who wouldn’t want a pet panda? With Yakables Panda, children can interact with their own panda friend in the “real world” using augmented reality in their mobile device. Upon opening the app, Genius the Panda pops up to introduce herself as the world’s smartest panda.

She then offers to answer a series of pre-selected/pre-written questions about what it’s like to be a panda. The possible questions appear at the bottom of the screen and users can read aloud the ones they wish to ask. What do pandas eat? Where do they live? Why are their heads so big?

Genius is fun and lively and offers good information to share with her new friends in a new way.
