Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:

I saw this advertised on my Facebook feed, and found it rather clever. I think this is a cool step in integrating educational games for kids while blending virtual reality and reality together. It’s a different concept that I hadn’t seen in quite the same way before.  

 

This appears to be a Kickstarter-type project, so check out the page, and see if it’s something that you think will be good. My son is a little too old for this sort of thing, but I can see how in time, some of the games could be extended for older kids and teens, as well as adults. 

 

This is a cool way to use an iPad or mobile device for educational purposes.
