Shape Lab — Canvas

mockup 05

Two years in development, Shape Lab is an open-ended geometry app designed for the iPad and created for the primary school classroom environment.

Featuring shape recognition technology, Shape Lab allows students and teachers to explore shape and measurement concepts simply by drawing on the screen.

The complex, open-ended nature and broad target audience of the app presented particular design challenges. We needed to provide a set of shape and measurement tools accessible for everyone from very young children with developing motor skills right through to adults. This specific set of requirements created conflicting priorities that needed to be carefully balanced.
