Color 4D is an app targeted to children which connects the traditional world of coloring books with augmented reality technology.
First, the child chooses the animal from a special set that they want to color, for example shark, tiger or fish. When the chosen animal is already colored, next thing to do is to start the app on the mobile device, point the camera to the coloring book and watch how the colored animal has came to life.
Augmented reality technology enables the animals to be observed from any distance and perspective. Animated objects can be enlarged or shrunk to fit various sizes of screens. Colors of the animated animals are true to these used by the child in the coloring book. Some animated characters allow interaction, for example the child can make a dragon belch fire or frighten a bird on a branch. Users can take photos and record videos with the animated characters and share them in social media.
