Crayola ColorStudio HD for iPad brings Coloring to the Apple Tablet
 
 

Griffin Technology and Crayola announce the availability of Crayola ColorStudio HD for iPad, an accessory and iPad app combo that brings coloring to the Apple iPad.

Crayola ColorStudio HD offers a multi-activity drawing app for iPad with a marker-shaped digital stylus, iMarker. With the functionality of a marker, crayon, pen and paintbrush in one, iMarker allows young artists to interact with animated coloring book pages that move and react while being colored. The iMarker brings the ColorStudio HD App to life on iPad, generating custom-produced pictures, animations, sound effects, music and other special effects with each touch on the Multi-Touch display.

“We love creating technology for kids, and our partnership with Crayola allows us to elevate their signature blend of kid-friendly creativity into the digital world,” said Mark Rowan, President of Griffin Technology. “ColorStudio HD is the first of many offerings to come from this exciting partnership.”

“We’re thrilled to collaborate with Griffin Technology to bring a timeless children’s activity to life in an amazing new way,” said Warren Schorr, Head of Crayola Licensing. “Crayola ColorStudio HD ushers coloring into the 21st century by turning the iPad into an interactive coloring book that morphs and transforms as kids digitally color.”

The Crayola ColorStudio HD App is able to differentiate automatically between a child’s finger input (taps, swipes, etc.) and the input from iMarker. For the first time, users are able to manipulate both the creative space and color without having to toggle between app modes. The ColorStudio HD App provides hundreds of hours of playtime, with more than 30 animated coloring pages, pictures, sound effects and music. Young artists also have the option to design an unlimited number of their own coloring pages using ColorStudio HD’s extensive built-in library of backgrounds, music, sound effects and other elements. Artwork can be e-mailed, uploaded to Facebook or even printed directly from iPad to any AirPrint-enabled printer

The Crayola ColorStudio HD is available for $29.99 from Apple Retail Stores. The Crayola ColorStudio HD App is free on iTunes.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
