Audible Kids is a mobile feature that brings together hands-on activities and 3D virtual reality, giving kids the opportunity to express their creativity while listening to an audiobook.

 

CHALLENGE

Amazon Audible challenged us to create new ways to engage users in audio stories. 

PROCESS

While talking with company mentors, the team mentioned that they would like to engage more with a younger audience. After browsing Audible content, we got the inspiration to have kids recreate stories they hear by drawing them and sharing them on the mobile platform. With a few unity experiments, we were able to add a feature to wrap the drawing into a 360 sphere, and let kids view the drawings in VR.

The final product lets users print a template for 360 drawing, draw images while listening to the audio content, and then upload and view the content in VR. Users can also browse other VR content by clicking on different storied.
