We believe that the future is here: hybrid playing environments that intelligently encourage the iPad generation to also carry out analogue activities. The Kids Wall in the video above offers children the chance to first colour in some drawings by hand and then bring them to life in a large digital aquarium. By using a Kinect camera the children’s’ movements can be recorded, so that the fish they have coloured in can be made to swim towards them.
This stimulates the creative thought processes of children and in turn their fine motor skills and introduces them to the technology of tomorrow. Before you know it they will be working on Finding Guppy in the Pixar studio of the future!
