AR playing cards: Cartas Chido AR app

Collectible playing cards enhanced with AR technology

Users scan cards to view and collect augmented characters that interact with each other

THE GOAL

  • Create an extra dimension in a special edition card game
  • Cartas Chido! is a well-known brand of collectible playing cards for kids in Mexico. The company wanted to launch a special edition with a fun and modern element to it, offering kids an interactive experience which would allow them to go beyond the physical cards themselves.

    THE SOLUTION

  • Augmented reality gaming cards
  • AR app: Cartas Chido! [ Google PlayApp Store ]

    The Cartas Chido! AR app allows users to collect 25 digital cards and see the characters come to life, interacting in 3D augmented reality. When users scan a single card, a character appears and remains in idle mode. When two cards are scanned next to each other, a song starts to play and the augmented characters dance to the music.

    The app has a virtual album which can be taken everywhere. Kids can share their collections on social media and invite friends to collect as well! The AR characters have helped boost sales, and within the app, users can locate card game distribution centers with ease.
