Imaginality brings learning to life using Augmented Reality.Hold a beating 3D heart in the palm of your hand and see how blood flows through it, investigate moon phases, or have fun creating and sharing 3D objects with your friends.

IMAGINALITY is designed information in an intuitive and engaging way that is both easy and fun to use. It supports prescriptive, self-paced learning for visual, audible and kinesthetic learners. It also offers unique forms of interaction with virtual objects that are not possible with real objects.



 
The IMAGINALITY Suite
 
Imaginality Play is an Augmented Reality ‘App Store’, full of educational experiences, called modules, that have been created by professionals and designed to target specific topics in the curriculum. Many are accompanied by detailed Teacher Guides and Worksheets to make lesson plans easy and to maximise each module’s value. Images and video can be captured for cross-pollination into reports, tests, journals, assignments and portfolios.

FOR EXAMPLE: The “Moon Phases” module enables students to move the moon around the earth and understand how this affects moon phases and tides. The Teacher Guide helps you cover all the relevant points and comes with printable worksheets that the students can complete in groups.


 
Imaginality Create makes it easy for students and teachers to create and share their own IMAGINALITY modules. In seconds, choose a 3D model and place it on a paddle. In a few more seconds, have your 3D model interacting with other 3D models. In just a few minutes, complete your module and have it automatically uploaded online to share for free with friends and parents.

FOR EXAMPLE: Make planets scale to their relative sizes when they are held beside each other.


Imaginality Play
  • Professionally produced modules
  • Detailed Teacher Guides
Each of these are 10 to 20 pages, and include: module value (its advantages over other learning media for this subject); general curriculum fit; a description of what students can explore; curriculum learning objectives; key concepts; a quick start guide; elements specific to this module; a glossary; sample worksheet with teacher notes and answers; info paddle text; instructions on how to use the module along with common student questions

  • The ability to add a limitless range of 3D objects via the IMAGINALITY CREATE
  • Over 60 sound effects that can be attached to 3D objects or interactions
  • Preview any SketchUp 3D model in AR with one click
  • Tight integration with Google SketchUp
  • Access to 200,000+ free models in the Google 3D Warehouse.


The IMAGINALITY Suite includes everything you need to start using IMAGINALITY. The full package includes:
  • Windows PC or Laptop (coming soon to other platforms)

What is Augmented Reality?
 
Augmented Reality takes a view of the real world and overlays visual information as if it is in the real world.


How does IMAGINALITY work?
 
IMAGINALITY takes the best of computers (e.g. graphics and interaction) and combines that with the ease of playing with real objects. Using a web cam, real objects we call “paddles” can be moved around with virtual objects attached to them. The computer screen allows you to see yourself moving the 3D virtual objects as if they were real objects.
