Thanks to Larry Ferlazzo I’ve just learned about an exciting new augmented reality application available for Android and iOS. colAR Mix is an augmented reality application that turns your paper drawings into animated 3D objects on your iPad or Android tablet. Watch a demonstration of the application in the video below.
To do what is pictured in the video start by printing a coloring page from the colAR website and color the page. Then use the colAR Mix app on your iPad or Android tablet to make the drawing come to life.
The Android and iPad colAR Mix apps are free. Until the end of the month all of the coloring pages are free too.
Applications for Education
The colAR Mix concept reminds me a lot of the concept behind ZooBurst of bringing kids’ stories to life.
