Band-Aid Magic Vision, a free app for iPhones and iPads, is linked to Muppets Band-Aids that already are widely available. After a bandage has been applied, children can use an iPhone or iPad and, within the app, point the device at the bandage, much like scanning a QR, or quick response, code, those pixilated boxes on ads, posters and packages.
