Painting is a great deal of fun and entertainment for the children. It is also very helpful in enhancing their creativity. Also, nowadays many kids spend a lot of time playing games on i-Pad. Keeping in view the above facts, an app Chromville has been developed that allows the children to give life to their painted characters using augmented reality. The app can be used with both the Android and iOS, and is specially designed for the kids in the age of 5-12 years. The game comes with the Template pages which can be 3D printed and then colored by the kids. These templates can also be downloaded from the internet.
The main idea of the game is that the characters are losing health due to fading of their colours. Children fill colours in the blank templates of characters. On the completion of colouring, they can be scanned using the tablet or smartphone. After scanning, the colored pages are recognized to give the characters a virtual life on the screen. The app makes exciting stories out of their creation. These characters can also be used in some other games. The painting book works on the same principle as Lego Fusion. Where the app can incorporate the kids’ physical construction.
The app is freely available on the web, accompanied by the blank templates to be coloured. The company has been planning to launch paid templates. The app is not only a fun for the kids but also enhances the story telling abilities in children. The app can also help in enhancing the quality of creative writing among the children particularly of the small age. For this purpose, a more advanced version of the app is needed.
