“Happy New Year everyone!!” Tough times don't last, but tough people do. Let’s get through the hard times, and let the celebration begins now!!
Chinese New Year is on the way! This might be the first time that the Chinese in the globe will have to celebrate the New Year virtually under the new normal. Can you think of any ideas to share your blessings and the sweets in the traditional candy box with your friends and family while still maintaining the social distancing and home quarantine? The Jockey Club “How Memory Sticks” Arts Education Programme provides you an augmented reality application, “Candy Box AR (全盒AR)” : http://howmemorysticks.org/AR/AR1/to make your wishes come true!
The application “Candy Box AR (全盒AR)”, using augmented reality (AR) technology, can be matched up with a set of nine lucky envelopes printed with different traditional Chinese New Year food that can be downloaded for free. Just open the app and scan the envelopes with your mobile camera, playful animations will pop up to introduce the auspicious meanings of the food. Players can also turn the animation into an e-card for sharing the food and blessings to relatives and friends. If you scan the three kinds of lucky envelopes together, the pop-up animation will form a candy box showing you the meanings of every traditional Chinese New Year food in the box.
Although we might not be able to visit our relatives in this coming Chinese New Year, we can share the joy and happiness enveloped in traditional Chinese New Year food through “Candy Box AR (全盒AR)”!
