Video conferencing with a HUE document camera
Keep HUE occupied at home (part 2)
Here’s a list of fun things that HUE can do to help you beat the boredom blues.
Find some feathered friends
Make a ‘walking water’ time-lapse science experiment
Make a stop motion animation
Oh, the possibilities! Need some inspiration to get started? Then watch our HUE Book of Animation playlist on Youtube for 17 super stop motion ideas.
Catch your plants ‘dancing’
Focus your HUE camera on a leafy houseplant near a good source of daylight and set HUE Animation to take a picture every 5 minutes or so. Leave for a few hours, from day to night, then watch them come alive in the video!
TOP TIP: Oxalis and Maranta plants are highly recommended for this project! Some plants like to boogie more than others so ask your good friend Google or experiment with different plants.
Film time-lapse ‘racing snails’
Get off your sofa, step away from the phone and head out into the fresh garden air. Find some snails and set HUE Animation to take a photo every minute.
TOP TIP: Focus your HUE camera on a piece of lettuce, cabbage or carrot and let the snails come to you!
Make a speed doodle
Make a time-lapse video of yourself drawing or doodling. Set HUE Animation to take a photo every second and play them back at double speed.
Break the routine – with a dance routine
Make a dance routine video and share with your friends. Watch this video for some funny dance moves to learn. How many can you do?
Make a crafty animation
Flex your model making muscles and get creative with craft materials to make your own animated worlds and puppets. Grab the glue, collect your clay and get making for some hands-on family fun. Art box looking a bit sad and empty? Then head to our friend Dawn Feather’s fabulous Etsy store to stock up on all your animation essentials; get InspirEd!
Make a news broadcast
