Additionally, Nickelodeon is harnessing the power of augmented reality (AR) to bring the gooey green slime of the Kids' Choice Awards into fans' worlds in a brand-new way. In the Do Not Touch app, viewers can fly the iconic KCA blimp and dump slime all over their homes. The app creates the interactive experience by using a mobile device's camera to detect real world objects."
Fans can currently cast vote for the Kids' Choice Awards at the event's official website and via the Screens Up mobile app. They can also cast their votes through social media on Twitter.
