Griffin Crayola Color Studio HD
Now you don’t need to panic when your kid uses your Apple iPad to scribble upon. And why should you?
Griffin’s Color Studio HD app is where the magic happens. Crayola Color Studio HD™ is an app to create all your favorite colors on the iPad's Multi-Touch display. Working together, Griffin and Crayola Color Studio HD have created something very exciting. The app uses a magic coloring book that uses animation and music to make the whole drawing experience live and exciting for kids. The collection of 30 fully-developed, animated coloring pages Griffin includes from the onset makes this one of a kind.
But in totality, the “heart” of this product is the special feature of iMarker- an intelligent black & silver digital stylus that acts as a Marker, Pen, Crayon and Paintbrush. Using iMarker, unlike typical iPad styluses, a child can touch the iPad’s screen without accidentally making marks in the coloring book. It's powered by a single AA battery and the Color Studio HD app can differentiate between finger-touches and the stylus tip. You can save, print and share your images, even over Facebook.
There are sections that let you draw freehand with the iMarker, or create your own coloring pages filled with black-outlined objects from a library of backgrounds, small pieces of art, and music.
After going through the experience of using this, one would definitely say as a technology fan that it is unbelievably cool.
So are Griffin Crayola Color Studio HD and the iMarker worth considering? Yes. It is an outstanding technology spawn. What you can look forward for the future is that if the iMarker becomes a rage, there will be a plethora of tools & apps using pen-sensing for more sophisticated artwork. That would be something to see. Based on our experiences with Color Studio HD, it’s an amazing beginning for mind-boggling creative apps for children in the near future.
