Arnimate augmented reality coloring book lets characters come alive

This new technology allows a child to be able to color in the traditional way, but with a high tech twist.

The use of coloring books is something that children have been enjoying for generations, but today’s kids are used to having a digital spin to everything they do and augmented reality is about to help them with that.

A.R. technology is now making it possible for newly colored characters to come alive on device screens.

This isn’t just a matter of having the animated pictures move about the screen. The augmented reality technology used by Arnimate has made it possible for the characters to appear in three dimensions, appear to move about the real world when viewed through the device screen, and will even respond to being “touched” by kids who are playing with them. This is certain to create a new sense of wonder for children who had previously found coloring to be a game that was limited to choosing the shades and trying to stay within the lines.

The augmented reality coloring book experience from Arnimate is meant to be fully immersive for kids.

Every page in the brand’s coloring book products produces a different scene. When viewed through the mobile app, it becomes possible to bring the complete creation to life. The three dimensional characters and scene will start to appear in real time through the device screen. They will move about in front of the child (or adult). The entire scene and all the characters within it will appear in the colors that were selected by the person who filled them in.

The characters within the scenes are all touch responsive which means that they will interact with the mobile device user through the screen when viewed through the app. Each of the scenes can be viewed from different vantage points.

According to the Kickstarter campaign that was launched by Arnimate, “This way, page after page, children will create their own world. They will meet new characters and play fun and educational games, which will undoubtedly develop creative thinking and install thirst for learning new things.”

Every augmented reality coloring book comes with 12 different scenes that are fully interactive through the app. When they are all completed, they make it possible for the user to play a complete game with the main character. It also comes with sound effects and background music that allow a child to essentially create their own full video game.

Can augmented reality convince kids to like their veggies?

AR technology is being used to help to encourage children to make smarter eating choices.

Encouraging kids to eat their vegetables can be a challenging activity for parents and other child guardians, but a new effort using augmented reality technology has now been designed to help in this effort.

The use of technology through smartphones may hold the answer to making healthful eating more appealing.

A company called Powerful Plants is now providing fun and educational options that are designed to help to show kids that they can eat in a way that promotes a healthy body, while having a good time and enjoying themselves. This company goes above and beyond the simple sale of products that are interesting to kids. The packaging for those products is enhanced with augmented reality technology to help to make things even more exciting.

When viewed through an augmented reality app, the packets show vegetable characters that appear to come to life.

Augmented Reality - VegetablesThe Powerful Plants products, themselves, are seed packets that give kids what they need to be able to grow their own veggies in their own containers or backyards. Each packet comes with a character printed on it. When viewed through an AR mobile app, the cartoon character appears to come to life, moving around and talking.

The AR cartoon character provides the child with a number of fun facts about the specific type of plant that they will be growing, and that they will one day be eating. This provides the child with an education about the plant and the healthy food, in a way that is fascinating and fun for the0The combination of education and mobile technology has been increasing in popularity. Equally, a growing number of toys have been including mobile features as well as augmented reality, with companies including large brands and tiny one-product businesses working the tech into their offerings. In the case of Powerful Plants, they have managed to use this opportunity for both education and for play in order to make sure that the kid has fun, but will also take important information with them that will hopefully promote nutritious eating throughout their lifetimes.
