What is IMAGI-NATION?
In line with Pentel's philosophy, we wanted to create something that could help everyone celebrate the joy of expression together, whether young or old.
After rounds of brainstorming, we created a web app under the idea of Pentel IMAGI-NATION, to help with expressing oneself by bringing traditional pen to paper art and writing, to the world we experience in our real lives.
This web app is designed to help project your artwork into your surroundings via AR (augmented reality). Please follow the instructions below to try it out on your mobile phone!
How to use our web app?
Step 1: Prepare your artwork on a clean, white piece of paper. We recommend to ensure that there is at least 3-4cm space all around between your artwork and the edge of the paper for easier masking.
Step 2: Open the IMAGI-NATION web app on your mobile phone and swipe to read through the instructions.
Step 3: Choose to either take a photo of your artwork using the web app or upload it from your gallery if you have already taken a photo of it.
Step 4: Toggle the masking function to ensure that the white background (if any) is being removed and the artwork is masked properly.
Step 5: Once you're happy with the masking, open your artwork in AR and project it onto your surroundings.
