sooooo....i've mentioned my brand new toy to you guys before. in the previous post and if you
this is my new friend, Sprout.
yup, like those adorable little green shoots you see out of the ground or in your emoji keyboard.
the super cool people over at HP gave me the opportunity to review their newest computer. like any normal gadget freak, i was like, heck yes! *insert emoji of girl in pink shirt raising her hand* but this guys, is more than just your average computer. as described on HP's website, Sprout is a creativity station and a full functioning computer.
let me explain to you what that means exactly.
so it's got everything you would expect a normal computer. it's got a wireless keyboard and mouse and a beautiful 26 inch monitor. but what makes it special are 1) the monitor is completely touch screen, 2) the overhead projector and 3) the activity mat. the projector and the mat work hand in hand to be able to make all the magic happen. from scanning objects (like my lipsticks in this post!) and being able to take those images and move them around the mat using your fingers, so you have absolute control. there is a stylus which you can use to draw or write but you can use your finger as well! what i love are the options you have to create with no restrictions or limits!
and that's just the surface of the Sprout. there are also apps to be able to create music using the piano keys that project onto the mat. you can also scan objects into 3D images. the editing programs for scanned images is pretty sweet too. you can skype with another friend and create projects together using your sprout - talk about being able to create projects across the internet with that option! (sandy, are you reading?! me and you, girl!)
like i said, i am just scratching the surface and it's been exploring and discovering the magic Sprout can do! i'm sure this is only the beginning. expect more projects to be posted in the days to come!
