Using only a computer and a webcam, interactive animations allows learners to animate their world using Scratch and their own movements. We use a tool called video sensing that uses motion picked up from the webcam to start digital animations on the screen. The result is something not quite real life but fully immersive and imaginative. How will you #AnimateYourWorld?
For this activity, you will need a computer with a webcam and the Scratch editor.
