This feature is on your phone, tablet or gaming device that lets you scan the real world (places, things, people, ostriches...) with the built-in camera and add digital elements and layers of special effects to make it even more awesome.
VIRTUAL REALITY GAMES
Such experiences usually require you to put on some sort of VR goggles. When you play, you can see a whole new world surrounding you, move around and interact with other players and things inside the game.
HOW AUGMENTED REALITY WORKS WITH LEGO® HIDDEN SIDE™ SETSOur free AR app turns your child’s phone or tablet into an interactive ghost-hunting tool. As they scan different colored disks in each play set, they unleash a world of supernatural shenanigans – revealing the mysterious Hidden Side behind the set!
Just because we grown-ups can’t see ghosts, it doesn’t mean they’re not real to kids. The LEGO® Hidden Side™ sets let kids be heroes in their own ghost stories, combining physical and digital play. They can play the AR game alone, or team up with friends for extra-fun group play
