AR Get-Well Card Helps Spread Holiday Cheer To Kids In The Hospital
Honda's 'Ultimate Get-Well Card' includes messages of encouragement amid a magical winter scene
With all the fun and festivities the holiday season brings it can be easy to forget what a difficult and lonely time of year it can be for many, such as those staying in hospitals. For hospitalized children it can be especially rough, so to make things just a little bit more magical Honda created ‘The Ultimate Get-Well Card’ using augmented reality to help spread some cheer to kids at the Children’s Hospital of Orange County.
This unique get-well card uses immersive AR technology to dazzle children with 3D wintry landscapes complete with icicles and falling snow, as well as cute animated characters like doves and snowmen. When the digital card is opened, messages from well-wishers around the world are displayed for the children to see and hear.
To create the card, Honda crowdsourced messages of hope from supporters on Facebook, as well as collecting personalized video messages to each child from members of the hospital staff. Check out the video of the children below or click this link to experience the card for yourself.
