Deepblue Worlds Inc. has created the Dino On My Desk Virtual Dinosaur Kit.
Playtime, and knowledge-time has now been combined in a beautiful new package. Kids can get more out of the virtual dinosaur experience by combining the physical products and the virtual products the kit offers. Books, cards, board, and app makes the Virtual Dinosaur Kit special as a truly valuable ensemble for dino lovers worldwide.
Dino On MY Desk Virtual Dinosaur Kit (TM) promotes fun and learning through innovative uses of Augmented Reality.
The main item in the kit is an Augmented Reality (AR) platform on which Plunkett, the little blue protocerotops appears when seen through a mobile device. Users can download the free app on Google Play store, and Apple App store on their mobile devices, point to the Augmented Reality platform, and watch as Plunkett the protocerotops gets transported from the late cretaceous era of the earths history, to our times.
Playtime, and knowledge-time has now been combined in a beautiful new package.
The user can tickle, pet, take pictures (including selfies!), collect hidden virtual prehistoric objects, feed, and build a unique relationship with the curious and mischievous little animal from the cretaceous era.
The app features various secrets that can be unlocked, that each give glimpses into life in the era of the dinosaurs. This, combined with the dozens of facts that are built into the app, makes Dino On My Desk uniquely educational, while being an innovative use of Augmented Reality technology for kids.
The Dino On My Desk Virtual Dinosaur Kit comes with a beautifully illustrated and written storybook by Diana Shakti Contreras, ‘Meet Plunkett, the little blue protocerotops’. It is illustrated by Ken Angliongto, a game developer/cartoonist, and long-time collaborator of Deepblue Worlds.
The kit also comes with an engaging manual on this particular species of dinosaur, ’14 Fun Dino Facts on protocerotops’. It is written by fictional dinosaur expert and explorer, ‘Xplorer Julia’.
Finally, to cap it all off, the Dino On My Desk Virtual Dinosaur Kit also comes with an attractive deck of 25 poker sized cards, ‘Dino Facts’. Each card has an engagingly written blurb, and a colorful cartoon (also by Ken Angliongto) exposing a dinosaur, or nature fact.
‘Our goal is that a child playing with our kit becomes a real mini-expert on protocerotops, and its ecosystem’, says Sunil Thankamushy, the creator of the product.
The Dino On My Desk Virtual Dinosaur Kit is available now in our Giftshop.
