Researchers over at Disney are really thinking outside the lines.

This super impressive video shows off an app they made, which turns colored pictures in a coloring book into 3D, moving models.

The video can be a little dry, but when it shows what the app can do, it will blow your freaking mind.



What is this sorcery???



The whole thing reminds us of what Microsoft showed at this year's E3, where they pulled Minecraft up from a table by using a Hololens.

It's kind of a cross between that and this virtual reality app that lets artists draw in the space around them.

We've said it before, but we really are on the cusp of a landmark period for technology influencing art and how it's made. Sit back on enjoy it!

Swedish mobile software developer 13th Lab released this neat iOS app called Minecraft Reality, which lets you combine your own creations with the real world landscape through augmented reality, not to mention you can find other people's Minecraft constructions that have been uploaded in locations nearby using the mobile camera.

Playtime 2.0 of the Day: Qualcomm demos its Augmented Reality-fueled Sesame Street playset that brings to life real-world Muppet toys and accessories using an iPad and Qualcomm's patented Vuforia AR technology.

This sort of next-generation model for playtime is bound to be controversial, not the least because it shoehorns children into a one-imagination-fits-all reality that leaves little room for creativity and inspiration.
