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.
Eggs coming near you!!
I first heard about Heya on Product Hunt. They have made one of the best AR app out there. Beautiful design. Its cool to see what eggs people have been placed, and how they were placed them. Not enough eggs right now but it looks like its growing up. Recommended if you are interested about could / will be possible with Augmented Reality in a near future.
My family doesn’t like it when I play video games and they want me to be active. So when I found this app it was perfect because it’s promoting people to go outside more which I think is important. But also it is a very fun app with things to do and explore was the perfect fit for me.
