  • Offer an additional interactive and fun element to the game
  • Currently sold in more than 40 markets around the world, Hedbanz have been one of the top-selling children’s games in France, the UK, Italy, and Australia for 15+ years. Spin Master wanted to take the Hedbanz craze to the next level with the launch of a Hedbanz App.

    THE SOLUTION

  • Image Tracking AR app
  • AR app: HedBanz [ Google PlayApp Store ]

    With the Hedbanz AR app, families can add even more fun by putting a face filter on players to turn them into the card on their head.

    The wacky face filters transform players into a dog, cookie, elephant, etc. that can be shared with family and friends. This added interactive element brings extra fun to the fast-paced, laugh-inducing game, which is available at retailers everywhere.

    Using Wikitude Image Tracking technology, players can scan their opponents and see them digitally transform.
