Here’s a delightful virtual stocking stuffer for all you chappies: Aardman Rights, in association with London-based cross platform app developers Widebeam Digital, have announced the launch of the all new Wallace and Gromit Chat-O-Matic App for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch! Selling for a mere 1.49 GBP (about $2.34), the app is a true audio-visual treat for Wallace and Gromit fans of all ages.
Chat-O-Matic comes pre-loaded with 48 classic Wallace saying, like “Someone’s been at me cheese,” and “Hold tight lad and think of Lancashire hot pot.” But the fun doesn’t end there! Users can select their favorite phrase and when they turn their Apple device over and place it under their nose, they will have the animated mouth and voice of Wallace.
Robert Goodchild, Head of Licensing, Aardman Rights says, “In true Aardman style, the ‘Chat-O-Matic’ App breaks mobile and animation boundaries by utilizing pre-captured frames and reanimating them within the app in real time to create a very realistic Wallace that we all know and love.” Joe Morsman, Senior Developer, Widebeam Digital comments, “It’s been a pleasure working with the Aardman team to develop this groundbreaking app. We have utilized the latest technology to bring Wallace to life in a fresh and innovative way that we’re certain will engage fans of all ages.”
