Pas a Pas: A stop-motion animation tool for the classroom
"Functionally, the most important aspects of the Pas a Pas are its screen and camera, with which children can create a stop-motion animation with a series of simple steps. The screen displays an arrangement of colored shapes. A child arranges corresponding colored blocks over the shapes, directly on the screen. With the pieces in place, the "record" button is pressed, and the camera above, which points down at the screen, takes a snapshot. The screen then cycles to the next frame of the animation, with the child moving the relevant pieces. So on to completion."
