So maybe the new show will feature "Augmented Reality?"

That...is a terrible idea.

Especially considering that VR is best used for kids at certain ages...like over the age of seven or something.

Just make the God Danged Show GOOD for Jeebuses sake!

You won't NEED stupid gimmicks to keep people's interest. the show and writing will speak for itself.

This whole thing just kind of reads as the Nick Executives doing this:

VR and AR are the future whether most of you like it or not, now I don't know if this is going to work or not but it's the start of companies experimenting on things to keep kids interest in watching their content.

Multinationals are spending a lot of money right now on AR and they've been doing it for a few years now, soon enough it'll just be a thing that everyone accepts as normal since more and more products include AR stuff. Mattel's new line of figures based on Jurassic Wold Fallen Kingdom also features AR so you can use your phone or table to scan your figures and get more "play" out of them.

I think this is cool, not sure how they'll implement it but I'm guessing it's going to be small tidbits that will not excited the older crowd whether it's mini games or a way to interact with the show.

Blues Clues is one of the shows that they mention alongside TMNT so it's easy to tell that in that show kids are just going to select "the clues" whenever the main character asks them what the clue is. When I was a kid you had to scream at the TV and it didn't give you any feedback, now kids will get it.

That's pretty cool but I'm guessing most "nerds" will reject it but they're not the target audience.

Actually it's the exact opposite of that, it's the 30+ year old "geeks" who think they know what is in and what isn't and to them VR/AR are just "gimmicks" which they aren't.

Last line of the article...”your odds of getting a fat hit are greater if you have more at-bats." So basically swing for the fences and who cares if you strikeout once in awhile. Or maybe try lots of things and hopefully something works. idk

How would that even work for something like a TMNT cartoon series...

If VR used with a better portrayal of TMNT was ever able to make fans feel like you're standing among them while watching a movie/series OR interacting with them within a game... admit it, most of us would just die. That needs a decent live action series (or at lest more movies) though. A 2D cartoon like this doesn't sound impressive enough to bother with it.

AR would be what... Are we doing a TMNT version of Pokemon Go?


I can see it now...

The year is 2030, AI and visual representations of characters on mobile on-screen are capable of natural sounding voice based conversation and society has mostly accepted it... It's no longer weird to be standing there having a conversation at the bus stop with one of the Turtles (or someone from some other show) appearing, on screen, to also be waiting at the bus stop... What has become of humanity. (Although TMNT would be fun once in a while. At home. Some would get way too hooked though.)

I could also see that being more useful in 2-3 minute "specials" or something, that will maybe take a scene from an episode and have it set so it can feel like you're part of the action. And maybe use that as a chance for you, the viewer, to get chances of dropped clues to later events in the series that maybe the turtles didn't catch because they were too busy fighting or working on something else.

I already posted some ideas of what it could be when it comes to the Blues Clues reboot, as far as TMNT I'm not entirely sure but there's tons of possibilities. I mean you have to remember that the show is still just a show on your tv, so they can't automatically make it super interactive, at least not with today's technology.

Maybe it can have quizzes, scan this QR code for a mini-game or to see leo's training that they mentioned in the show but didn't show on the episode and have a 2 minute exclusive video to watch during the commercial breaks. Stuff like that.

Netflix is also getting into the AR action, they've dwelled on it, for example in Kong: King of the Apes which I watched a while ago included segments in the show where after watching an episode you unlocked other videos and in those videos you chose "what power up" you gave Kong to fight the bad guy and depending on what you chose you would lose or win the battle or sometimes neither and it all included different footage for this. Of course You woudn't be able to do this on real tv, it works for netflix since it's streaming but it can give us an idea of what they'll do.

THAT is why I call it a gimmick..

for instance, would they use something like this for say, Spongebob? or does SB have no need for extra help to keep kids interested?

for something likes blues clues I can see it as a way to keep the show interactive. but not for other shows.

Vegita-san is literally a 40 year old angry man yelling at clouds because they use different technology in kids cartoons these days differently than what he grew up with in the 1980's.

I have a theory, Vegita-San is CyberCubed from an alternate dimension. The more you think about it, the more it makes sense.

He's about 10 years older than me, and gets angry about kids cartoons. Who knows? But at least I enjoy TMNT.

I'm looking forward to Rise.

If the sponge got a reboot it might happen.

They've kept experimenting with it since 80-s.
Not much of a progress have been done since then. Not in a technical matters, but in matters of application. And series with gimmicks ("augmented reality") also have existed in the 80-s.

You are not much better 'cubed. You also complain about cartoons for kids, so...
