The Color Band app uses the iPad’s camera as a motion sensor and lets kids draw and play musical instruments.
The iPad app Color Band lets children (and adults too!) draw objects and figures and then play them like musical instruments without even touching the screen.
The app uses the iPad’s camera as a motion sensor to allow the users to make music by waving their hands in the air in front of the screen. The app has a record and playback feature so users can listen to their musical compositions. Color Band also allows users to take real-life objects and program them with the app to play specific sounds.
The app is a fun and interactive way to teach kids about art and music. The app has over 80 different colors, each with a unique sound or sound effect. Some colors have scales or chords and others have multiple sounds. In-app purchases are also available for more coloring and musical features.
The app was developed by LND Games, a three-man studio based in Taipei. The studio first came out with Slap That Zombie, another game that makes use of the iPad’s camera as a motion sensor.
The app is available for free on iTunes.
