There’s been a lot going on in the Happy Goon camp recently, so we checked in with co-founder and C4DI member Tim Mutlow to get the lowdown.
For those of you who aren’t aware of Happy Goon, they create augmented reality greeting cards that will come to life when viewed through the Happy Goon app on your camera-enabled device!
With Christmas fast approaching, the guys at HG have released a new range of festive cards, as well as setting up pop-up shops throughout Manhattan to spread the AR joy in the holiday season. Unfortunately it would be an expensive trip to see the pop-up shops for us Brits but congratulations anyway!
As well as preparing for this years festivities, Happy Goon have been providing ongoing app development and support to make sure you can enjoy their greeting cards to their full potential. Recent adjustments include an updated UI, native screen recording and sharing in iOS, custom onboarding screens and constant performance improvements.
Tim also explains how they are expanding their knowledge of augmented reality outside of greeting cards: “Our experience and unique design philosophy along with the wide-reaching potential of AR has lead to a number of exciting discussions with businesses to enhance their brand or products including: AR cupcakes, AR comic books, AR stationary, AR workspaces and some which are just too max-level top super-duper secret squirrel to even tell you about yet…“
Even more good news for us Brits, the Happy Goon website is now trading in GBP and distributing cards from the UK which cuts down on both postage costs and time! That means it’s even easier for you to get awesome AR cards to give to your friends and family in time for the holidays, and to celebrate C4DI member get an exclusive discount code and free by-hand delivery from Tim Mutlow!
You can collect them the day after ordering directly from him in the C4DI building, as much as he’d like to deliver them to your house he’s a very busy man doing various AR things… (See discount T’s & C’s below)
