Giving kids around the world the most portable of coloring books #FTK

What it does

Using the Leap Motion, you're able to paint the screen as if it was a coloring book. All you have to do is wave your hand around and the paint follows your fingertips. It's basically fingerpainting, but digitalized.

There are three modes to choose from: Free Draw with a blank canvas, Coloring Book with a great image to color in, and Therapy Mode where those going through light hand physical therapy can accomplish their sessions while having so much fun.

And like any good coloring book, it features both pictures to color and blank spaces for all your creative needs.

How we built it

We used the Leap Motion, Sendgrid, Javascript, and Python to bring it all together.

Challenges I ran into

Our main challenge we faced was finding a way to export the finished image and send it through an email

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We managed to have it so any user can locally save their image to their machine.

What I learned

Coloring is really fun. Also get some sleep. Also doing back-end development is very difficult.

What's next for Color With Friends~~

Improving functionalities and adding new features like different coloring templates and images.
