The iPad is a fun tool to use, but the best parts about the iPad are the creative applications that make it do more. One upcoming application dubbed Foldify will allow you to create 3-D paper figures on your iPad. The teaser video above will give you a sneak peek at Foldify and what it will let you do.
Foldify gives you a nice example of what you will be creating on the left side of the iPad screen, while on the right side of the screen, you will actually be creating the figure. You will be coloring the figure to your liking, using the example as a guide, which shows you what your current progress will look like once your project is folded into its 3-D form.
There are a lot of different figures to choose from, of all different shapes and sizes, and there's no right or wrong way to color them. This means your imagination can keep going wild each time you use the application.
Once you finish up with your coloring, using the fun tools and colors included with the application, you will be able to use an AirPrint-enabled printer to print out your colored figure in a large, medium, or small size, where you will then be able to cut it out and fold it all together to create the 3-D paper figure. Alternatively, you can e-mail the figure as a PDF if you don't have an AirPrint-enabled printer, so you can print it on another computer.
The application takes advantage of the powerful graphics in the iPad, as it displays the 3-D figures on the screen in real time as you rotate them and color them. The whole interface looks great and this sure looks like it will be fun to use. Are you going to be grabbing this when it's out?
