The Laughter Network is a source of daily happiness that combines these two key ideas to help people improve their mental well being:
People make people laugh + Forming a regular habit = Improved mental well being.
The initiative consists of a box of 30 tea bags and the app Layar*, which creates interactive print through the use of augmented reality. Attached to each tea bag is a tag. These tags are scanned using the app with the help of augmented reality technology, to reveal a corresponding video. The linked videos range from people laughing, telling jokes, babies laughing and the like. It allows users to enjoy a quick snippet of laughter to start their day, take a break and boost their mood.
*The Laughter Network is in no way commercially associated with Layar
