Flash Actionscript / Iphone Development
Noodles, construction paper and glue. Remember when you were in pre-school and early elementary school? The teacher would pass out construction paper, glue, noodles and pinto beans to the whole class. Then it was up to you to create the masterpiece.
These items were the inspiration for Noodle Masterpiece. Our goal was to create an easy to use online application that appealed to kids and the kid at heart. We recognized the need for safe and fun place for children to play online. We wanted to create an application that could easily translate to multiple media sources including the web, iPhone/iPod Touch, and other mobile environments. Noodle Masterpiece would be a modern incarnation of a classic craft.
Luna designed the site to be reminiscent of a messy art table with littered with crayons and glue. The Flash Actionscript took this craft to the next level. Users have the ability to create their masterpieces using a variety of objects. A user can print, save and email their masterpiece. PHP was used to interface with the Actionscript to create a dynamic gallery where you can comment on other masterpieces.
We then added a social media component where users could save their masterpiece and send it to a friend. Then users can come back and "browse" all masterpieces in the Noodle Gallery. Users can also comment on the pictures creating unique content for Google and other search engines to index. The site has not been launched to the public yes as we have a 2nd version shortly coming out - but a working version is available for sale on the itunes store and for free at www.noodlemasterpiece.com.
Noodle Masterpiece has become the online/mobile craft table of the future. Noodle Masterpiece is a no mess solution to develop kids imaginations and to keep them busy for hours.
