Children are always curious and excited about the world, but there are often accidents around them. According to some previous studies, each year in the United States, more than 2,200 children – or six kids a day – die from an injury at home. To deal with this situation, parents usually set simple life safety rules for their children and be consistent about enforcing them in a reasonable manner. At the same time, they try to reduce the possibility of psychological harm to children when correcting errors. As a result, parents desperately need a way to watch and improve their children's safety at home. However, how to use entertaining ways to make children recognize the danger, and be able to guide them correct behaviors to avoid harm? And how to notify their parents when the situation is bad? This is a big challenge for most parents and also applications that are out there right now. Therefore, I created an Augmented Reality (AR) interaction Application called ‘Finder’, which is a brand new application that can guide children to self-learning to avoid potential dangers in the house in a playful way, inform their parents of their real-time situation and promptly share a digital way to improve the safety awareness of children at home.
