Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) and Sesame Workshop have created an amazing learning experience for kids. This app is way, cool! It uses Vuforia augmented reality (AR) platform’s text recognition technology, allowing the app to read. …And there you have it – Big Bird reading to your child – what a terrific way to learn! Coming this summer, we’ll be on the lookout for this way-to-cool app!
