iPegboard from Perler

Clifton, NJ (PRWEB) November 12, 2012

Perler, the leading fused bead brand, and Phunware, the leader in enterprise-branded mobile application infrastructure and experiences, have taken all of the fun of the digital world and turned it into something kids can create, touch and share! Launching this month, the Perler iPegboard and app offer a link between the limitless inspiration of the digital world and the abounding creativity of kids’ imaginations, turning online images into real-world projects.

Once a parent downloads the free Perler app from the Apple store, kids can select their project image three ways:

1.    Choose from free patterns from the interactive Perler gallery.
2.    Upload an image from their iPad camera roll (Available mid-November).
3.    Snap their own picture to upload (Available mid-November).

Images can then be cropped, rotated or changed in color before they are transformed into a bead template right on the screen. Fit the the iPegboard over the iPad and bead away! Once complete, the iPegboard easily lifts off without messing up the project, and an adult can iron the beads to fuse them into a sturdy work of art. Customized patterns can be shared through email, Facebook or Twitter.

The iPegboard fits over an iPad tablet with soft-grip edges that keep the pegboard from directly contacting the iPad screen. The iPegboard and app work with Perler mini beads, available in more than 40 colors, and is intended for children ages 6 and up.

The iPegboard is available at JoAnn Fabric & Craft stores and Perler.com, with an MSRP of $9.99 and up. The Perler app is available as a free download through the Apple® App Store®.
