Get Qurious launches Children’s Augmented Reality App

[] Los Gatos, California – Get Qurious Inc., a bay area based startup creating fun and innovative games and activities, has released AR Diorama – Qurious Island 1.1, an important update to the first augmented reality line of children’s creative and educational apps /activities for iOS devices. Get Qurious products are designed to spark children’s curiosity, discovery, and passion for STEM / STREAM learning – Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, and Math.

The theme of the AR Diorama – Qurious Island app is Tropical Island, and it features a “building menu” with digital objects typically found in a tropical environment. Kids combine these objects with five DIY craft projects to make their own augmented tropical island.

Adding digital elements creates a magical environment for the kids- the tide pool glistens, palm trees drop coconuts, clouds make rain (and even cause rainbows under the right conditions). Kids may notice some true-to-nature relationships such as water causing seeds grow and flowers attracting butterflies.

Kids are encouraged to use their imagination to craft a world that’s part digital 3D and part DIY craft projects. (And 100% creative.) As part of the play, kids are motivated to physically get up and move around the world they have created, so they can explore hidden details above, below, around and even inside the objects.

Additional features such as taking pictures, recording notes in a field journal & shooting videos with their own narration help kids express their individuality in a unique augmented reality diorama. This kind of open-ended play will intrinsically motivate kids to explore, learn and spark their imagination about topics that could in the future become their passion.
