Resin , an Adelaide based design studio, has tried a solution to turn the book–reading experience into something wonderful. With its first app Two Left Feet, Resin has implemented an awesome idea of enhancing the book-reading experience with augmented reality technique. Let’s learn more about it.
The app brings the book, Two Left Feet by an acclaimed UK Author and Illustrator, Adam Stower into real-life experience. Through the use of 3D augmented reality (AR) technology, children can experience the characters in the book in 3D animations.
About the Book:
The story takes place in a fantasy world where monsters live and they love to dance. These monsters live in ‘dungeon world’ rooms carved into the cliffs of a mountain whose atop is the Glittering Palace, home to the King and the location for the Grand Ball. Through this book, the author conveys a great message that people should move on by learning through all the problems they face in life.
Children will learn about how our differences are often the things that make us special through the lead character, Rufus who loves to dance in spite of his Two Left Feet.
