We’ve been drawing attention to a number of blogs which cover our Hue Camera and HUE Animation products in depth recently, but what about other online reviews and discussions which include useful information about HUE?
We’re going to try to round up a few of them in this post!
Educator Mark Warner paid a visit to the HUE stand when he was at the BETT show and we were delighted to see that he gave us a mention in his BETT round-up, noting HUE’s potential as both a classroom visualiser and an animation camera.
If you love toys then the Toy Talk website is for you; it’s jam-packed full of information, reviews, competitions and activities for kids of all ages. They’ve even featured our HUE Animation Studio pack!
We were tickled pink by this entertaining article in USA Today which sheds light on the sci-fi imagery behind hundreds of modern inventions. The HUE camera’s unique shape was reportedly “inspired by robots with tentacles in The Matrix and invading spacecrafts with long necks from Steven Spielberg’s 2005 version of War of the Worlds”.
LEGO stop motion animation never seems to go out of fashion with its limitless potential for creating unique buildings, vehicles and storylines. The Little Stuff blog covered this aspect of HUE Animation Studio some time ago with some fantastic examples of LEGO animations made by the writer’s sons.
Of course, we recommend HUE Animation Studio for people starting out with stop motion animation; it’s an all-in-one kit with everything you need. If you already have Boinx’s iStopMotion though, the HUE camera is a great choice for a flexible animation camera with a manual focus. And it works with iStopMotion out of the box – no special drivers or plug-ins required!
Perhaps you’re not interested in animation, and want to use the HUE camera as a visualiser or document camera? GadgetVirtualTour lists some ideas for getting more out of your HUE in the classroom.
