Featuring the Muppets is a mobile augmented reality app that turns any ordinary Band-Aid Brand adhesive Muppets bandage or box into a stage for interactive entertainment.

By downloading an app and aiming an iPhone or an iPad at one of the Band-Aids, users could watch hidden videos of Kermit, Gonzo and Miss Piggy.

The app, co-developed by JWT, can prompt a song from Kermit the Frog, a red carpet entry by Miss Piggy or a "daring act of lunacy" from Gonzo.

The new Band-Aids work with a free "Magic Vision" AR app for iOS. When synced with a photo of the Muppets Band-Aid, the app presents them with fun interactive animations that'll help turn their pain into smiles.
