“Virtual Aquarium” turns doodles into lifelike swimming fish! Let your children paint the fishes with real pens on real paper, scan the paintings and virtually the fish appears, animated, to swim around our virtual aquarium.
Here’s how it works:
First, children choose a template of the fish that they want to see swim in the virtual aquarium and color it however they like. Next, they scan the completed drawing on a special machine. Their fish will then magically appear on the giant screen and start swimming around! The images are even programmed to move like real fish, undulating and changing direction in the water. You may be pleasantly surprised to see that fish of the same type will sometimes create schools and swim together!
Doesn’t such a cool toy make you feel like you were gypped in childhood?
