Do you want to inspire your kids creativity in digital learning? What a better way than exposing them to 3D design learning ecosystem.. HOLOFIL-cardboard our consumer display visualizes the 3D assets created by your kid in various simple kids 3d software. The 3D assets could be simple 3D models, 3D animations, 3D games. HOLOFIL-cardboard helps your kids creativity come to life by providing a simple smart phone visualization platform, the way 3D printer does it by physically printing (CAD for kids).
HOLOFIL-cardboard offers a range of creative options to trigger your kids creative spirit to keep them motivated to learn more complex challenges. It was launched on Indiegogo crowdfunding in Aug 2022 to raise $15k by 150 supporters organically and since have sold many hundreds of units worldwide, bought by parents mostly for their kids. It has its own apps / animations / casual 3D games / learning framework ecosystem, further to help kids use it as an engagement device further. More will arrive as the community grows. Join us in creating a community to empower your kids in 3D learning.

Why should kids learn 3d design ?
Do you know how fast the world is moving in the 3D direction and how its important to have familiarity with the 3D ecosystem starting from the school education level? Many schools have already moved in that direction introducing their students to basics of 3D design in terms of 3d modeling, animation, game programming etc. All the VR/AR head mounted displays and mobile AR uses 3D content as well.
3D is an exciting field to trigger interest of kids at young age to expose them to the range of possibilities in 3D design (3D is the new digital Legos). It starts with giving a brief idea of the 3D basics and then exposing to various range of free resources available on Internet that helps kids get exposed to 3D tools such as the TinkerCAD tools from AutoDesk. (CAD - Comupter Aided Design).
3D has has two main aspects. Create a 3D model / object and then animate it to do some action. 3D models can be created from scratch in software such as TinkerCAD or even downloaded for FREE or bought ready made from marketplaces on Internet (search 3D model marketplace on Google) . You can also create them from your mobile phone cameras using 3D scanning apps.
3D model once created can then be visualized in HOLOFIL-cardboard as it is, or after animating it.
Why use holofil for kid's 3d learning?
Use HOLOFIL-cardboard as a beginners learning end display platform where your kid's designs of 3D models and animations will be visualized. If a kid is designing random models without any framework in place he will not end up learning how real life usages look like. Aiming to visualize your 3D assets in HOLOFIL-cardboard and designing with that goals brings real life constraints on design, to help kids prepare better.
As they have a final aim for their designs such as size, scale, colors, movements, lighting, so they look best in HOLOFIL-cardboard, it helps kids think methodically to plan and execute better and get ready for more complex projects.
kids learn how to build projects with specifications to fit the constraints of any device. It's always great to have an end goal during academic learning than just randomly design things because in real life there is always constraint that needs to be kept in mind while designing. This gives a disciplined approach in design with an end goal so the kids can then transform to more complex devices including VR / AR devices etc with more complex content requirements.
