The HIT Lab NZ just released a new software colAR for free to download. colAR is a computer program that brings colouring book pages to life with the magic of Augmented Reality! You can colour in the book pages and then see them come to life as virtual images on your computer screen. This page tells you how to download and run the colAR application.
The HIT Lab NZ is providing this software for free for the Christchurch Kidsfest 2011 event. The application shows a normal colouring page as a pop up image through a web camera. It captures the colours that you draw with so that each coloured page will have a unique Augmented Reality scene. To download software and user guide please go to http://www.hitlabnz.org/colAR
