Disney wants to turn coloring books into 3D characters with augmented reality
Children nowadays are far more tech savvy then most of us will ever learn how to be, and their minds are constantly stimulated by their electronic games. After getting their hands on such dynamic and interactive 3D characters, those simple two-dimensional drawings just lose their magic.
With this in mind, a Disney Research team created a project to use augmented reality to turn a simple drawing into an incredible 3D character. Augmented reality is nothing more than using technology to connect the real world to the digital one. Thus, a smartphone or tablet could capture the drawing being colored on paper and project it in three dimensions instantaneously while you’re still working on coloring them.
