A rival to Recoil, covered last year, Merge Blaster from MergeVR is another run-and-gun game with phones adding the AR feature by bolting them to plastic weapons.

One-time camera maker Vivitar is embracing AR wholesale and has a raft of products on show at CES. The new products include a headset for children to view 3D models of animals, a microscope that uses augmented reality to learn more about the tiny world under the lens, plus an AR globe that lets kids explore the world and learn about different cultures.

Another kid’s product is Kolibree’s AR toothbrush that provides AR games and fun to encourage youngsters to brush more and keep their teeth clean.
