Free augmented reality experience for Christmas 2020
So many children will miss out on visiting Santa this year due to COVID-19 restrictions. But, digital app company, Red Frog Digital, have created a free experience that enables families to bring a virtual Santa into their own home – without even needing to download an app!
The North West-based AR/VR company has created an augmented reality experience that means users can place an interactive, virtual Santa in their own environment using cutting-edge technology.
David Loveridge, CEO of Red Frog Digital, said: “This year with has been so difficult for so many people, not least children. Many haven’t been able to see friends, grandparents and extended family and, of course, social distancing means it isn’t impossible to visit Santa for this year’s festivities. Red Frog Digital wanted to do something about that.”
“We’ve created a free augmented reality experience that enables people to bring a virtual, interactive Santa into their own home to create magical photographs and videos with. You don’t even need to download an app to use it - just visit the Santa Experience page on our website.”
Red Frog Digital hopes people will create some special memories through photographs and videos their loved ones with Santa this year. Visit the Santa Experience here: www.redfrog-digital.co.uk/holidays/holidays.html
