LG Avatarbook announced

When we talk about consumer electronics firm LG, what comes into your mind first? Well, of course those snazzy looking Smart TVs would be right on the top of any wishlist for most folks, in addition to the wonderful fridges that seem to have a whole lot more functionality thrown into the mix compared to the TVs of yesteryear. Well, here we are with a new kind of interactive smart TV app which will do a whole lot more to augment your little one’s imagination, as it enables young learners to end up as part of beloved children’s stories as well as songs. In a nutshell, the LG Avatarbook will place your little ones squarely in the thick of action.

 The Avatarbook smart TV app will enable children to see themselves onscreen as the main characters, where they will appear as animated versions in various classics such as Aladdin, Pinocchio and Alice in Wonderland. Other than that, Avatarbook is also a fantastic method for young learners to engage in a far more direct manner with age-appropriate literature and music.

Richard Choi, senior vice president of the Smart Business Center at LG Electronics, said, “Avatarbook is part of LG’s commitment to bringing child-friendly, interactive educational apps to its Smart TV platform. As a medium, Smart TV has unlimited potential to really engage young learners in new and compelling ways. As a leading Smart TV manufacturer, we believe strongly the need to develop unique applications that the entire family can enjoy.”

It is all too easy to be part of an exciting tale or happy tune on Avatarbook, and most kids are able to do so themselves. First of all, one will have to choose from 10 fun songs or five classic children’s stories, following that, they will be able to capture a self portrait by using the LG Smart TV’s integrated camera. There are 20 different hairstyles to choose from, in addition to changing the size, shape and contrast of their new avatar’s face. Expect it to be on LG’s App store later this month.
