Kids love watching animated cartoons. Something about them is just so appealing to many. Is it the colorful characters? Is it because kids can learn how to create them? Whatever the reason might be, cartoons and kids seem to go hand in hand. Parents will especially make the kids all the more excited if they give them a way to create their own animation. This is quite possible with the new Crayola Color Alive Easy Animation Studio.
The Crayola Color Alive Easy Animation Studio is a set of new coloring book and markers that allows kids to design their own characters. But that is not where everything stops. This special coloring book set features technology that allows the kids to let their characters come alive. This is possible with the use of an accompanying app on a smartphone or tablet. Kids only need to import the character via the device camera and the app will make the character come to life on the smartphone or tablet. But that is just for the coloring book. The Crayola Color Alive Easy Animation Studio has more to offer.
The Crayola Color Alive Easy Animation Studio also comes with a wire frame mannequin to work together with the Color Alive coloring books. Using the mannequin, kids can control the actions of their digitized animated characters by creating different poses for them. The app will recognize the pose from the device camera and apply it to the digitized character. With this, kids can even create their very own animation show using the digitized character and the wire frame mannequin. The app makes it even easy for creating stop action animation through intelligent ‘tweening, which fills in the in-between gaps in created poses to have a more fluid animated scene. The Crayola Color Alive Easy Animation Studio also supports adding voices and backgrounds to what the kids create. Kids will find it easy to do and will let their creative juices flow as they start creating their very own cartoons with the Crayola Color Alive Easy Animation Studio. It is expected to be available in stores this July and will cost around $25.
