Imagine that you could high five a mermaid that you just colored or explore your own version of Atlantis. With Imagine VR, you can do just that. You or your kids will start by painting in one of our two Coloring Books, then use our VR App to take a snapshot of your work and place your smartphone in the provided VR goggles to experience your paintings in a way never before possible.
Imagine VR is an innovative VR Coloring Book product that combines a VR App and two Coloring Book Series. The Imagine VR app will capture the color images you have painted on one of our coloring books and transform the 2D still images into animated life characters in the virtual 3D space, illuminated with beautiful shimmering light. When putting on the VR goggles with your smartphone inserted, you will be totally immersed in a vibrant world of fishes, whales, sharks, dolphins, coral reefs and beautiful mermaids – a 360 degree panorama of captivating beauty!
Imagine VR is a merging of two concepts: the long tradition of coloring books and state-of-the-art VR technology.
For centuries, coloring books have been a popular tool for inspiring children’s creativity and training their cognitive skills. For many adults, coloring books bring back the memory of the joy of their childhood. Coloring has experienced a resurgence in recent years as people have discovered the therapeutic effect of coloring book – relieving stress and creating focus in a way like meditation.
The challenge of the Imagine VR project lies in the transformation of the concept of coloring books. By successfully mixing this art tradition with advanced VR technology, Imagine VR opens up a new dimension for coloring books. With Imagine VR, you will not just bring to life those 2D line art fishes and mermaids with colors. You will actually bring them to life and swim freely in the 3D virtual space. You can also interact with these virtual fishes and mermaids, and play the keyboard on the seashell to create interactive music. Imagine VR lets you experience a visual spectacle beyond your imagination.
Coloring has been used as a relaxation practice in a manner like meditation for adults and as creativity stimulation for children. Calm your nerves and reduce stress like never before with Imagine VR. As for your children, challenge them to play, interact and experience their art in a way that they never thought was possible.
Bringing your art to life is easier than ever with Imagine VR. Whether you’re destressing after a long day of work or bringing your entire family’s creations to life on a Friday night, Imagine VR lets you experience your art like never before.
Sometimes you need nothing more than to take a break from the responsibilities and hustle of everyday life. Designed for the busy adult looking to de-stress, our adult series, Imagine Atlantis, lets you take a break from reality by reinventing the legend of the sunken city. With 40 pages of breathtaking images to choose from, take yourself to the “city under the sea” where you can press the button on your VR goggles and interact with the fish and mermaids from wherever you best unwind.
Imagine Atlantis is a reinvention of the sad but beautiful legend of Atlantis. After the volcanic eruption, a terrible tsunami came. The magnificent city of Atlantis sank into the ocean. Thanks to the mercy of the blue ocean, a miracle happened. The princesses of Atlantis transfigured into mermaids. With the help of marine fishes, a new home was rebuilt in the deep ocean.
The Finale – the Underwater Waltz is a visual spectacular. All the marine characters you have painted will come to join the dance. You will experience the joy and harmony of the underwater world.
Imagine VR provides an intuitive way for your children to enjoy creating art and experiencing Virtual Reality. Kids will be amazed when seeing the fishes and mermaids they have just painted actually swim and come off the paper. Imagine VR makes their imagination come true.
With Imagine VR, you can go beyond encouraging your children to “think outside of the box” or “color outside the lines.” They’ll create, color and immerse themselves in a marine world where they’re the hero. With six fun games, the Quest of the Marine Star coloring book for kids has 30 pages of inspiring images and creative coloring patterns what will have them develop their own story and expand their creativity beyond the scope of 2D.
Quest of the Marine Star is an adventure about saving marine lives. Your child's mission will be to use their imagination to color and create 5 beautiful marine worlds. They will be challenged to protect their marine world against the pirates and help the mermaids collect 5 lost hearts and achieve the reunion of the Marine Star.
