Odyssey Toys to Launch ARIA's Adventures, Interactive Game Combining AR Tech Innovation
Odyssey Toys, the leading drone and remote-control toy manufacturer, is revolutionizing the augmented reality experience for kids with its new educational game ARIA’s Adventures. This augmented reality interactive application combines physical playing cards with the company’s own cell phone-compatible virtual reality headset to teach memory skills and facts about different animals, among other valuable early learning skills.
“We really think that this game is the epitome of where educational gaming is headed,” said Sal Irigoyen, president of Odyssey Toys. “ARIA’s Adventures is one of the most advanced and interactive augmented and virtual reality games designed for younger children. Early response from New York Toy Fair just last month indicates that this will be a great success.”
ARIA’s Adventures offers several interactive and exciting gaming options utilizing augmented reality, the latest gaming phenomenon that causes physical objects in the real-world environment to appear as though they’ve come to life. As learning about the natural world elements like jungles, forest and animals can be daunting, kids can embark on a virtual journey through the jungle with Aria. Sixty different animal cards all come to life to teach the player valuable facts about itself, which adds a stimulating learning element to the basic acts of coloring and reading.
