AR-kid : Space, an educational journey to space

"AR-Kid: Space", a great immersive application for children who wants to discover space.

“AR-kid: Space” is an Augmented Reality application allowing young children to discover Space and the history of its exploration in an innovative, fun and immersive way.

Through four chapters, this application takes children to explore the cosmos. Accompanied by a chubby robot called Cosmo, you and your children will experience a little educational journey into space.

The first chapter describes in detail a rocket and allows you to see it take off after a very successful countdown!

Once the rocket is launched, you will pass to the second chapter which allows you to see the earth from space, to observe the international space station on which an astronaut is trying to intervene or to have a closer look at a communication satellite .

The third chapter is devoted to the moon – this time an astronaut will plant a flag in your living room or class before you are exploring the lunar environment – and the fourth chapter describes the solar system and each of its planets .
The explanations of the robot, Cosmo, are very clear and last about fifteen minutes in full, but the children (and the parents) will be able to extend the experience by turning around the rocket placed in the living room, by moving in the solar system or by approaching the astronaut, etc.

This application is available in Lite version (free) and in full version (less than 2.50 €) on the AppStore and the PlayStore.

Pros

+ Very good quality of animations and effects of this AR app.

+ The youngest will be amazed and captivated by all the explanations of Cosmo, the robot guide.

Cons

– The experience only lasts for about fifteen minutes

– Guidance in the application is only done by voice.

– We would also have fancy text bubbles, to listen to or avoid relying only on the context of use.

-there is no mouth on the face of the robot, which makes it difficult for the youngest children to understand who is talking at the beginning.
