The Stop-Motion Kit includes:
The armature figure has been specifically designed for creating stop-motion animations. Made of flexible but sturdy wire it is possible to move the armature into any position and it will hold that position without drooping or recoiling.
Animate with your character straight out the box, or use the included modelling clay to cover the wire and sculpt your own character. This is the technique used in many professional stop-motion feature films.
The armature has magnets on it feet which keep it firmly fixed at all times to the included metal and foam stage as you animate. Use an Android or iOS device as a wireless camera, Using the free Zu3D Remote Camera app. High resolution images can be streamed live from your device to the included powerful animation software Zu3D, on a PC or Mac. Alternatively use the included USB animation web-cam to capture images into the animation software.

It has capabilities and features which go far beyond the beguiling nature of it’s welcoming interface.
