‘Oddbods’ Launches AR App with Weyo

‘Oddbods’ Launches AR App with Weyo

New iOS app will use face-recognition technology to bring the world of “Oddbods” to life.

One Animation’s “Oddbods” property has partnered with Weyo to launch an augmented reality, face-recognition app for iOS.

The app, built with Weyo’s AR engine, uses the power of Apple’s ARKit3 and allows users to engage in immersive AR-based adventures and become an “Oddbods” character with face-recognition technology.

“Bringing families together through inclusive learning, humor and play is in ‘Oddbods’’ DNA,” says Sashim Parmanand, chief executive officer, One Animation. “Weyo has brought these values to life in a fantastically useful, fun and groundbreaking way. Our little fans are placed at the center of a super fun and educational digital adventure, whilst parents are given a toolkit that delivers interactive and useful ‘hacks’ to help with the rigors of daily life in a never-seen-before format.”

The app, which debuts on the Apple App Store on Nov. 28, follows recent “Oddbods” deals including partnerships with KFC, Popeyes and Walmart in Mexico.
