In my previous post, I reviewed the Octaland 4D+ Flashcards which uses augmented reality technology. Next, I am going to review the Animal 4D+ Flashcards, also by Octagon 4D+ Flashcards.
How it Works
As explained in my post on Octaland 4D+ Flashcards, what you receive in your purchase is just an ordinary set of flashcards. In Animal 4D+, there are 26 cards featuring animals starting with the letters A to Z.
To works its augmented reality magic, you would need to download the Animal 4D+ App into your smartphone or tablet. You can find it on both Google Playstore and Apple App Store.
Launch the app and place the flash card in front of the camera. And voila! The animals come to live!
Things can get a little noisy, as the animals make their sounds.
You may notice that the Animal 4D+ cards are less elaborate in design compared to the Octaland 4D+ cards. However, there is one thing the Animal 4D+ card has that Octaland 4D+ doesn’t: An interaction mode.
You will see a little icon called interaction at the bottom left of the screen. Tap on it to launch the interaction mode.
You will need 3 additional food cards for this. Download them HERE. (Under ‘Animal 4D+ Cards, click on ‘Download Food Cards’.) After you have downloaded and printed them out, you are ready to go!
First, let’s try out the monkey + banana combination:
COOL right?? Next, let’s look at the bee + flower:
And the grass + horse + cow + elephant interaction. Yes, you can put them all together!
That was one noisy interaction! And just for laughs, play around with the arrangement of the cards and watch how the animals try to get to the grass… We had a super good laugh but I shall not spoil the fun for you. 😉
