I’ve recently completed a new IT exhibit for Glasgow Science Centre called The Animator.
The exhibit allows visitors to create their own Wallace & Gromit style stop-motion animations using a built-in camera and a simple touch-screen interface.
The key with this one was absolute simplicity. All commercial stop-motion applications have tons of features that most people will never use, and have interfaces that take a while to learn. By contrast, The Animator was designed so that people could learn to use it in seconds, then go on to create an impressive looping animation in just a couple of minutes.
Keep a look out for it on your next visit to GSC.
