A new way to stop the Birthday card you send getting thrown straight in the trash.

Instead of receiving a flat, boring, lifeless greeting card, you could soon be receiving one that comes to life. Whether it's for your Birthday, Valentine's Day, or even just going on holiday, there are plenty of animated options.

Using augmented reality, the team at Gizmo have created an adorable robot that jumps off the paper of your greeting card – literally.

All you have to do is print one of the cards, download the free DAQRI app, load it up and point it at the Gizmo target on the card. Depending on the event, the robot will either rocket off a cake, snowboard down a mountain, or hand over a box of chocolates.
