Air Hogs Combines Drones With Augmented Reality to Create Innovative Play

Air Hog AR Game

The Air Hogs toy line has been around for almost 20 years and consists of many fun-to-fly toys for kids and adults. Today, Air Hogs has created a drone that combines real drone flying with missions and skill challenges in its augmented reality video game adventure. The game consists of a mat that you put on the floor that acts as a marker where you can see virtual troops, buildings, fires, buildings and other obstacles. If you run into a building, it (as well as the drone) begins to shake and wobble on screen, giving you the feeling that you actually ran into a solid obstacle. This idea of combining real world drones with a virtual world seems to be one that is catching on and should lead to many fun and exciting releases for now and the future!
