"It's not an easy thing to get the approval of a media giant like Disney to develop an AR experience for children. They have the highest standards of any global brand so we were really honored that they not only approved our AR software [to develop the children's app], but they were really, really impressed by the quality of our AR experience compared to others out there," said Albert J. Haug, co-founder of TIGRA Live Animations.
TIGRA Live Animations specializes in augmented reality development for the children's sector with consumer packaged goods, books and toys. Their app design has been praised for its simple, user-friendly design for even the youngest of users. The AR in development for a series of Disney products with Little Hippo® Books will be targeted to preschool children, ages 3 – 5 years. Although the audience is young, the quality of AR is not compromised, Joe Fasano, Director of Technology, at TIGRA says, "the reason our AR technology surprises most viewers for the first time is because of the quality of detail. Every blade of grass, the trees or what a character is wearing is extremely precise, vivid and viewable 360-degrees in 3D, even when you're zoomed in to the animation. Pretty much everyone thinks it's amazing!"
TIGRA Live Animations will be producing the augmented reality app technology behind a Disney-licensed Little Hippo® book, ABC Fun with Mickey, due to release in Spring of 2019. The book will feature a 3-dimensionally animated Mickey Mouse that launches from the pages of the book to take preschoolers on an alphabet adventure. The book is the first of a series and will have a total of 13 AR animations including a seek and find game, letter tracing, a musical animation of Mickey and a sing-along for a true interactive experience.
TIGRA Live Animations has had approximately 12 million downloads of apps they've developed across 51 countries. In December 2017 they launched a loyalty program together with the retail chain ATB in Europe. Within 3 weeks the retail stores sold through 250,000 books and the app was among the Top 10 Apps in the Google Play Store and Apple's Appstore.
TIGRA designs, develops and implements augmented reality for Android including ARcore technology and iOs including the ARKit technology. Apps on either mobile phones or tablets deploy 3D animations, games, and musical and educational interactions. From strategic concept development and prototyping to ongoing support and management, TIGRA's cloud-based platform makes AR App development as simple, fast and cost-effective as possible.
