Learning and technology go hand in hand these days, most every child understands or uses a laptop or tablet. Maybe not for school, but they sure know how to take photos or watch video on things like Youtube Kids.

With that in mind, why don’t we step into the next iteration in AR, Augmented Reality Flash Cards. Now learning comes to life as animals, numbers, astronomy and more jump from the cards to teach and entertain children. Through the window of a mobile device or tablet, children can see 3D images and hear information and pre-programmed facts. Part scholastic and part game, kids will want to scan every card you print or buy.
Currently, there are a couple card companies out there with no real leader apparent at this time as the technology and quality gains ground. Below are a couple options that might be worth a try.

AR Flash Cards:
AR Flashcards are a new way to interact and make Flashcards more entertaining for toddlers and preschoolers. With AR Flashcards, learning the Alphabet will be fun! When you point your device at the printed flashcard a beautifully rendered 3D animal will pop up on the screen. Tap the animal to hear the letter and animal name.

We make most dairy products such as butter, cream, ice cream and cheese from the milk we get from cows!”
