Crayola has re-opened the Crayola Experience in Easton, Pennsylvania, a short distance from both New York City and Philadelphia, after a multi-million dollar renovation. Spread across a 60,000 square feet building, the Crayola Experience features 18 exhibits that allow children to explore the intersection of art and technology.
Attractions include the Art Alive! exhibit, where users can create digital works of art, on Tryten kiosks set up with iPads featuring the Crayola DigiTools app. The artwork is broadcast onto a wall with motion-sensing capacities, and moves based on how the artist wants it to. For example, children standing at the kiosk can design and color a fish character, that joins a ocean scene wall display, and moves through the ocean.
Another Crayola Experience exhibit that inspires budding digital creativity is the Be A Star coloring page photobooth, where users can pose with their favorite Crayola characters, and watch their image appears as a coloring page on a display screen.
At Wrap It Up!, users can personalize and print an authentic Crayola crayon label, wrap it around a crayon, and create their unique Crayola crayons.
Exhibits also include a 85-foot water table, where children can navigate toy boats through a working lock and canal system.
