What if you could combine the fun of Halloween with the learning process?
Well, if you were smart enough to get a grip on a Magic Leap One device, we have some good news: The app you're looking for is here and is called Zombie Math.
Available as a free App in the Magic Leap World App Store. Zombie Math was developed by Jeff Paries a senior software engineer for the international digital agency AKQA.
The purpose of the app is very simple – it's a fun and easy way to refresh your math skills or help a little kid improve their skills from the ground up.
Once started, you can choose a male or female zombie in the game. After that, the zombie trudges across the surface of your real-world environment, considering mathematical issues that you can solve with multiple-choice answers.
The math is fairly simple, as it only covers multiplication and division problems. But if it's too easy, you can adjust the settings from Easy to Medium to Zomg!
If you get one, answer correctly, the zombie nods in agreement, but if you make a mistake, The zombie shakes his head and goes to his destination. Which goal do you ask? Why eat the most precious thing on the internet: a small augmented reality kitten. Really.
Saving the world in the game may have been a decent goal, but the playmaker knew that more people would enjoy saving this helpless cat.
If you can answer all 12 questions in one sentence correctly, you kill the zombie effectively. But if you lose it will be pretty bleak for our cat friend.
In addition, the zombie celebrates with a thrill dance on the newly dug grave of the cat.
Sure, it's not the most lavish or sophisticated example of using AR for learning, though It's a quick and easy way for educators and educators to show kids alike, which is possible if you really get into the world of Magic Leap's spatial computing platform. And the Halloween timing could be better.
