AR App Little Red the Inventor Creates an Environment for Storytelling, Engagement and Growth

From VR Scout:

The story is part of a voice-activated AR app called Wonderscope (recently released in collaboration with Chris Milk’s immersive storytelling company Within (their first major foray into augmented reality) which encourages user engagement through movement, reading aloud, and interactive play.

In this particular re-imagining, Little Red is an inventor looking to take her Grandma’s gardening to the next level. But to do so she’s going to have to learn to stand up for herself and venture beyond her own garden into Wolf Forest. Her mix of strength and vulnerability is something that I found quite refreshing, as it challenges many of the stereotypes we’ve come to expect not only in fairy tales (where there is some excuse), but also in the way modern media still tends to portray young girls.
