Heya lets you place eggs in AR and leave a secret inside. In a similar fashion to an Easter egg hunt, users go to different locations to find these eggs and to reveal their secrets.
The idea behind Heya is to provide a new mean of communicating through virtual objects placed in a real world environment. A user goes to a certain location and places a virtual object, here in essence an egg, and leaves a secret message inside. Another user goes to that same location, opens that egg, smiles and leaves another message inside. Every user who has been at the location and who has opened that egg are now connected through a chat.
What to insert inside your egg? Here are just a few examples to get you started:
• Fortune cookies like quotes
• A picture or video taken at the scene
• Instructions for the location of a real physical object hidden nearby
• Coupons or gift cards to reward those who came to the location
• For someone special said in a very special way
• Get fancier and start organizing treasure hunts where one egg leads to the next.
Ratings and Reviews
Simple idea yet wonderfully executed
The idea is super simple: you place an egg and leave a secret inside. Other people go to the location to find your egg, open it to reveal its secret and then perhaps leaves another message inside. Simple but cool. This is also very well done in terms of UI/UX. One of the best AR apps out there One could also image how this app could grow. Would love to see creatures which we could breed like in Pokemon Go.
This app has a LOT of potential
I am giving 4-5 stars for this app because I think this kind of concept can be taken very far. At the moment one can insert a text, a photo or record a video but one can see that the app could be extended to support many other types of media. In fact, I think it could be possible to re-invent Pokemon Go haha.
Innovative and well done
This app is one of best app in the augmented reality category, and believe I tried many. It starts with a simple idea: place an egg for anyone who is at the location to pickup, open and see what’s inside. Then the people who open that particular egg could leave other messages inside and a conversation follows.
