App That Brings Life To Coloring Book

Disney Augmented Reality Coloring Book

This app can bring coloring books to life. Using augmented reality kids can see their characters in 3D. The app reads the 2D drawing and generates a 3D image on the screen. The characters is left standing on the coloring book.

Deformable surface tracking allows the character to move with the pages. Texture generation matches and duplicates sections of the character to create the 3D version. The technology is still in development and isn't available for consumers just yet. Disney recently received a 2014 Edison Award for the app. Disney is bridging the gap between traditional activities like coloring, and digital devices. Such a concept introduces children to AR technology in a classic, conventional way.
