Color the page completely with bright colors. Then hover your mobile device over the page, and see how all the characters will come to life.
More and more often, we are facing the problem that children spend huge amount of time behind mobile devices and computers. As a consequence, children spend less time playing valuable educational games or drawing and reading and spend less time on the overall well-rounded development.
It is becoming extremely difficult to make children who are born in the age of information technology to be interested in something educational and useful that is not related to new technologies. Since the young age, we often hand our kids a tablet or a phone and turn on a game for them to play, but the tablets and phones are the future. So how to turn this into exiting and positive experience that is also educational?
We started thinking about this problem, and began looking for a solution on how to make children interested in doing meaningful activities on their own. We thought of an idea to create a solution that will combine children’s beloved tablet with typical educational toys. The idea is founded on the principle of Augmented Reality, which is based on the result of children’s creativity coming to life on mobile devices.
One of the advantages of our coloring book is that the drawing will not come to life until the child completely colors in the characters. To make the drawing come alive using the application installed on a mobile device, every page of the coloring book has to be coloured completely.
After this is done a small miracle happens: a flat image of the drawing will appear in the form of a live three-dimensional scene, where everything is decorated with the same exact colors.
All the characters become interactive and respond to touch. This way, page after page, children will create their own world. They will meet new characters and play fun and educational games, which will undoubtedly develop creative thinking and install thirst for learning new things.
This will help develop children’s imagination since they can choose the colors for their characters and create them with their own hands.
Each coloring book is a separate story with its own plot, and every page offers a unique experience of a magical world where children can play with all the characters: they will be smiling, singing, crawling, jumping and laughing.

The main character of every coloring book is a robot called Arni. From the very beginning Arni captivates you with an amazing story, in which you interact with him in many ways. In the story he used to live on a distant bright planet, but one day a mysterious rain fell and washed away all the colors from the surrounding world, and the world froze.
Arni went on a space journey to find help eventually arriving to planet Earth. Unfortunately this ominous cloud passed through here too, and made all his friends loose their colors. Despite all, Arni found the children and asked them to help him color the frozen world with bright colors so his friends will come to life.
STORY OF ARNI
We work closely with experts in the field of childhood education. They help us select the most suitable material for perception and education. We tirelessly worked on creating the scripts, 3D models, and the software. We selected only the best drawings and characters that children liked the most and that were recommended by the experts. In order to finalise our first book, create second one and finally realise our first project, we need your support.
Unlike in the case of our competitors, the user can interact with all the objects and the characters by touching the touch sensor of the mobile device. In response, the objects will move, make sounds and will be nicely highlighted. All the characters will talk, laugh, run, play and entertain the user in highly interactive scenes.
We have created especially beautiful and diverse surrounding world in all the scenes. Almost every element of the world is an interactive object. Greater number of characters adds liveliness and energy.
The scene comes to life only after the drawing is completely colored. This feature keeps children’s interest in coloring from the first page to the last, motivating children to dream and helping them to develop their imagination.
There are mini-games and one complete game in the scenes of our product, which definitely makes the process of child’s interaction with the coloring book more interesting, and entices him or her into the creative process even more.
We have come a long way in creating Arni coloring books. In order for us to release the first adventure, to finalize and deliver it, we need your help! Only you can help us by backing our project and sharing it with others. Let's help Arni and bring back colours to his planet!
Risks and challenges
The first live coloring book is almost ready, second one is 30% ready. We have made a lot of tests of each drawing in our App which is ready. We are very confident that everything will be done on time or earlier
The real risks are printing and logistics. We already agreed about book printing with the printing house. Delivery will be arranged with the logistics and fulfilment centre with which our team members have experience in delivering big quantities of products in a short time.
Even though we are confident that we can fulfil all the promises, printing and logistics can face with the delays. We will inform you immediately and we promise to do our best.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
