You can have your own unicorn friend with SYFY's new Happy! AR app

We're just a week away from the premire of Happy!, SYFY's (Full disclosure: SYFY WIRE's parent company) new series adapted from the comic book series by writer Grant Morrisson and artist Darick Robertson.

The series follows Nick (Christopher Meloni), a former cop turned hitman who has descended into a self-destructive lifestyle. After a near death experience, he encounters an imaginary flying unicorn called Happy! (voiced by Patton Oswalt), who engages him in a quest to save a little girl and, therefore, gives him purpose again.

Now, that imaginary unicorn can be yours as well.

The new Happy! app from SYFY Digital arrived on Wednesday, and features the titular unicorn doing everything from answering questions to defecating on your floor (but not really). Oswalt continues to voice the titular unicorn, and you get the benefit of hearing him talk to you as he floats through your bedroom.

Even if you're not yet enabled with Apple's ARKit or Google's ARCore yet, the app should still work. Basically, if you've got a reasonably current phone, you'll be able to play around with an imaginary unicorn. The app is available for download now.

Happy premieres December 6 on SYFY.
