Griffin Technology, one of the world’s foremost creators of innovations for everyday life, and Crayola, whose products have inspired creative expression in children for more than 100 years, announce the availability of Crayola Light Marker. The Crayola Light Marker is a new way for artists, young and old, to create digital masterpieces using innovative mobile technology.
Color and create with light on your iPad! Draw in the air with Light marker and watch as color appears on the screen. Crayola Light Marker sends an invisible beam of light to the iPad’s front-facing camera. The Light Marker’s movements are translated into lines of color.
Crayola provides a free downloadable multi-activity app that lets you play games, solve puzzles and create with glow-in-the-dark color. The app has a digital Crayola Crayon Box with digital markers, crayons, paintbrushes, stamps and more. The Crayola Light Marker app also includes multiple activities that are great for kids.
Artwork can be saved and shared via e-mailed, uploaded to Facebook and printed directly from iPad to any AirPrint-enabled printer.
“iPads are wonderful for young artists, giving children an interactive landscape to engage and create,” said Erica Tober, Youth Product Line Manager at Griffin. “Using the front facing camera, Crayola Light Marker allows children to play and produce digital works of art without touching the screen. It’s a magical new way to create!”
Crayola Light Marker comes with a stand for the iPad and is available now for $29.99 at select retailers and Griffintechnology.com/crayola/lightmarker.
