Disney Research has managed to come up with a cool solution to bring the adventures of coloring children’s book come to life. On a publication released today, a group of researches have shown how they have developed a method that uses Augmented Reality to turn a 2DÂ drawing into a 3D one.
As you can see from the video, it’s not only a simple 3D character that comes to life. The out coming result on the application is the capture ofÂ the texture of the object in real-time, allowing the unique color patterns on the page to be accurately displayed on a 3D model. Amazingly the models even move around with the pages through a Deformable Surface Tracking Algorithm, and have special animations.
Based on user research, of course, everyone is looking forward towards the app, as coloring is one of the happy joys of children’s experiences. Read more about the research here.
