Educating children through television isn’t new. Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Sesame Street, Arthur, Dora the Explorer—some of the most beloved shows among kids and adults alike are those that present learning in a fun, entertaining way. However, they leave their audience sitting passively on a couch or the floor with no way to interact, let alone affect the story itself.
A new augmented-reality app aims to change that. Wonderscope, a creation of AR and VR startup Within, wants to give the audience a chance to do that using smartphones and tablets.
