I just discovered an amazing new app for Apple’s iPad that I have to share here. It’s called “Alice” and is best on the bestselling classic, Alice in Wonderland. But this isn’t your typical re-hashing of Alice and the rabbit…oh no. Chris Stevens and Ben Roberts of Atomic Antelope, Ltd. have re-imagined this 145 year-old story from Lewis Carroll in a fresh, unique way by marrying together the power of storytelling with physics. The result is an experience that looks like it was scripted straight out of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner (my all-time favorite movie).
So what makes THIS version of Alice in Wonderland so unique? It’s the way you can interact with it! You tilt your iPad one way and Alice grows…you tilt the other way and she shrinks. Shake your iPad and the Mad Hatter’s head bobbles. Heck, you can even throw cards at the Queen of Hearts! “Alice” is truly a magical book experience that very well could define the future of children’s books.
The best part of this “new” creation is that it just goes to demonstrate, once again, that ANYTHING is possible with Public Domain content. Just apply your own creative innovation to it, like Chris and Ben did, and you end up with a runaway best-selling app (not an easy task). You can learn more about “Alice” on the Atomic Antelope website. And to get an idea of just how fun this app truly is, I’ll close with the “Alice” promo video.
