FIEA students win award for Boo Boo Snap app

Ask young kids what it’s like to get a shot or go to the doctor, and you’re likely to get some frowns. Two students, Christine Wright and James Gaiser from UCF’s Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy, wanted to change that.
Their invention, “Boo Boo Snap” is a prototype for an app on your smartphone that projects 3D images, talking characters and medical advice onto regular bandages. Their idea was developed April 13-14 at the inaugural MeGa Health Jam, where it was awarded “First Place” by a panel of medical experts and game developers.

The app was highlighted in a news segment on Fox 35 Orlando news.
