Hasbro has a new product on the market that will probably catch the attention of children, teens and adults. The Marvel Avengers: Infinity War Hero Vision Iron Man AR Experience will allow the user to battle like Iron Man using the Hero Vision Iron Man mask. This movie-inspired, 1:1 scale mask features a brand-new experience from Hasbro that combines traditional role play with Augmented Reality (AR) technology. All you have to do is download the HERO VISION app, place a compatible device (iOS 10, 11: iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone7, iPhone8, iPhoneX, Android 7: Google Pixel 1, Samsung S7, Samsung S7 edge.) inside the AR goggles, place AR markers around the play area, put on the AR mask, and then get ready to see digital images from the hero’s world in front of kids’ eyes. Collect Infinity Stones sold separately to unlock power-ups in the App.
So one rainy day while my daughter was at summer camp, one of my boys asked if he could try it out. He placed the AR markers somewhere in the living room and proceeded to try the Hero Vision.
He really enjoys it and continue to use it to advance in the game.
Here’s some images from Hasbro to give you an idea of what you can see in the mask using the app.
My seventeen years old son tried it as well but he find it annoying to hear the app giving him instructions all the time. I told him it was like when Tony ask his computer questions and it answers back to him. In the latest movies, it is more interactive and will comment on what is going on around him.
Then my girl came back from camp and wanted to try it out. She reacted to the voice as well but not as much and enjoyed playing with the AR. I suspect she will ask again to use it this week.
So far the experience with the Marvel Avengers: Infinity War Hero Vision Iron Man AR Experience has been a good one. I still have one child who has not tried it yet but he is serving at summer camp all the month of July before we go on vacation.
This toy is definitively something out-of-the-ordinary. The kids have been using my iPhone to try it out and I found that the battery drain rapidly. So I personally limit the usage to 30 minutes. I find it is just perfect for them and for me.
Note the mask is not intended to provide protection for your smartphone.
