Jigsaw puzzle mega brand Ravensburger, takes their classic family pastime to new heights of appreciation by applying an innovative twist: the company has unveiled four sets of puzzles that can showcase video animations and sound effects of the locations they represent via augmented reality as seen in iPhones or iPads. As seen in the video demonstration below, users can simply hover their iPhone or iPad onto the completed puzzle, launch the AR Puzzle App, and they can marvel at the amazing visuals and interesting pieces of information about the puzzles, such as a virtual bird’s eye tour of the Paris skyline, a close-up look at a clownfish underwater, among others.
Available in Europe for €14.99, the Augmented Reality Puzzles are scheduled for a third quarter release in the United States.
