Eye Paint Animals, by Curious Hat, is one of the most innovative and invigorating apps we’ve seen to date. TWA had the pleasure of speaking with Luca Prasso, one of the co-founders of Curious Hat, and got a better understanding of where this state of the art company has been and where they hope to go.  They strive to design tools for  children that encourage discovery play and foster creativity, they succeed spectacularly. Curious Hat has taken the iOs user experience to  a whole n’other level.  Luca states, “Our apps are not games, they are discovery tools aimed at energizing kids to play, create, invent, explore and learn in enjoyable ways without the limitations of set parameters.”

We are incredibly excited to share this review with you and we assure you, this is not your typical app. First, get ready for movement – children will be using the camera feature of the iPad. In order to find the effects they want, movement is mandatory. Remember, it is not called a mobile device for nothing.  This simple, but very edgy, app challenges your kid’s creativity and hopefully connects child to parent. Creatively speaking Eye Paint crosses the line and gives kids an opportunity to “finish the art” of a well know Italian painter. There are 20 original and kid-friendly drawings from Giorgio Cavazzano, one of the most famous Italian illustrators.

I picked the snake and a student took a picture of the books in the library as the backdrop, this took two taps for this joint collaboration, imagine the possibilities…

⦿ EyePaint ⦿ covers 3 main educational areas:

✭ The child’s desire to visually explore his/her surroundings
✭ The relationship between reality as perceived and the symbolic abstraction when applied to the illustrations
✭ The stimulation to use real-life images to express emotions

We got the skinny on a few new apps Curious Hat has in the works. “InfiniScroll” takes storytelling to the next plateau, you’ll have to see it to believe it. No two stories will ever be alike. EPHOLVE  is another new app, it is about time and photography. Below are two artists that will be showcased in  soon to be released apps.

 


Curious Hat is the brainchild of Luca Prasso and Erwan Maigret, both of whom are parents and seasoned professionals from the feature film production and software development industries. Their past film work, includes DreamWorks Animation’s Shrek film series, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon and Over the Hedge.

Fractions – Curious Hat Lab, is still around, new icon – same great game! Explore and learn about fractions with a simple and intuitive interface. Compare and visualize two fractions and guess which one is greater.  Oh No! Fractions is as simple as it gets. This gorgeous app lets the user decide whether the given fraction is less or greater than another fraction. After the child has decided and chosen less or greater, it asks,  ”I’m Sure” and then “Prove It” where a visual representation of the two fractions is shown and manipulated by the child. This representation gives a stunning visual comparison of the two fractions. Students were intrigued by this sassy app and played with determination to prove their answer to be correct.
