Greeting Cards Now Have A New Way To Express Your Feelings

“Print Media Comes Alive through Augmented Reality.” This line comes to my mind when I see the evolution of Augmented Reality and trust me today everyone wants to know how much this technology would be useful and what it has in store for us in the near future.

So today let’s talk about greeting cards. Greeting cards definitely are one of the best traditional ways of wishing or greeting especially on occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, festivals etc. Now these simple cards would have a special touch of technology.

The recent buzz is about the Greetings cards based on Augmented Reality and how it sends a personal message or a video to your loved ones through just a printed card.

Well there are many companies offering this at present but what has grabbed my attention is a robot Gizmo. The cute red robot sends a personal message as to a happy birthday or happy holidays or just a love proposal with special sticker based on the occasion. Once you receive the card, you need to keep the camera of your smart device then let it be an android or an iOS device, just keep the camera of the device at a particular range over the print card and see how the robot passes the message using Augmented Reality Technology


All I can say for this app is that it is definitely a biggest example of print media coming to life and all the credit for this goes to Augmented Reality Technology.

Soon this type of AR (Augmented Reality) based cards would be available and I am not only excited but also waiting for them. What about you guys? Experience and tell me more about it.
