Disney "3D Coloring Books" App is Awesome

Be Careful : Soon your children will steal your tablet to run the new Disney 3D Coloring Books app!

Coloring books are among the very first opportunities for children to create and learn self-expression through art. The Disney app Combines classic pen-and-paper coloring with the thrilling and immersive world of 3D animation, encouraging burgeoning artists to connect more deeply with their work and helping them to build even more imaginative worlds.

How It Works

Essentially, the app will track 2D coloring, on paper, using your tablet camera. Software magic will  apply the same colors in real time to a 3D model of the character, creating the illusion that every mark a child makes on their traditional 2D drawing is being printed on a 3D animated model even as they draw it.


Disney Research presented the initial design of the app at the IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality in Fall 2015 (ISMAR 2015). The app is still in the research phase, and therefore has no set ship date.
