Liquid: funny graphic editor

Background and Motivation: 

One of the areas of children's education is to increase motor skills. In this case, the learning process should take place in an entertaining way to attract attention. One of the tools available is a mobile device with built-in accelerometer. By controlling the device in space and touch screen the user can perform small functions. Another direction of development of the child is drawing.

Project Summary: 

Liquid is a funny graphic editor, in which control of brush is implemented by accelerometer or touchscreen. In our graphic editor there are realized basic drawing tools (brush, eraser, color tool) and additional (ice - local blur effect). Switching beetween accelerometer/touchscreen mode is implemented by shaking device on Z axis, also you can clear a screen by shaking on X axis and implement full screen blur by shaking on Y axis. To draw in accelerometer mode you must touch a screen in right bottom corner. And to change brush size you must touch a brush and wait for some time, then popup menu will appear.
