Desktop Tool Teaches Kids Stop-Motion Animation
The Pas a Pas is a simple device with a camera that shines down onto the screen and lets children record and rearrange a series of blocks.
The ‘Pas a Pas‘ is an interactive educational tool for children that was developed by Ishac Bertran as a final project at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design. It enables kids to learn and experiment with different elements using stop-motion animation, bridging the gap between abstract concepts from maths, physics or arts and reality.
The system looks similar to a projector, but features a camera at the top that shines down onto the screen. Children place a series of blocks on the screen and then hit record. The camera takes one picture, and they can then rearrange the pieces for the next frame.
