How Augmented Reality Soothes Kids Scrapes and Cuts

Japanese toymaker Bandai has developed a digital spin on mom or dad kissing your boo-boo to make it all better: augmented reality band-aids.

Targeted at kids aged 3–6, these digital band-aids are designed to soothe a child with some consoling words from their favorite animated characters.

Right now, this augmented reality technology is limited to the Japanese kids’ market and characters, but if it catches on, don’t be surprised if American characters like Mickey Mouse, Sponge Bob or My Pretty Pony don’t end up on your kid’s knee telling them that everything is going to be okay.

Still, it’s interesting to see the many ways that smartphones and AR technologies are beginning to integrate themselves into our daily, and most basic, tasks.

And while it would be pretty cool to see Luke Skywalker pop up on your hand, nothing is as satisfying to a child as a kiss on the forehead and squeeze from their parent.
