Color Vacuum launched worldwide in May 2012, and has received praise from first-time users and 5 star reviews from App Store devotees:

“Original and very good as a creative stimulation for kids (and adults…). Don’t miss this little piece of art.” (Tellurico – App Store Review – May 2012)

“Beautiful and educational” (Kilroy440 - App Store Review – May 2012)

“I love the open nature of this app which encourages kids to invent their own games using colors. It encourages active participation and movement, somewhat unique in the world of mobile apps. The artwork is fantastic!” (Danjl Wex - App Store Review – May 2012)

Founded in January 2012, Curious Hat produces innovative educational mobile applications for iPhone, iPad & Android for curious kids and explorers from 3 to 9yrs. The Company is the brainchild of Luca Prasso and Erwan Maigret, both of whom are parents and seasoned professionals from the feature film production and software development industries.

“We are absolutely delighted with the feed-back and praise for Color Vacuum since its launch last month,” said Curious Hat CEO, Luca Prasso. “From this week onwards, Color Vacuum will also be available in Italian, Spanish, French, Turkish & Portuguese, with other languages following shortly. We’ve also added an exciting range of new visuals and advancements to the first release of the app, based on feed-back received from our first users. Our mission is to create interactive and educational mobile applications that will stimulate children to interact with the real world, as well as fostering shared adult-child experiences.”

“Over the coming weeks, we will be launching the first of an ongoing series of workshop events where children and parents can get hands on with our apps,” added Prasso. “The first of these took place at the Children’s Creativity Museum in San Francisco on June 30, 2012. The aim of these events is to encourage kids to explore, searching for colors and to imagine new games where they set the rules. This was just the first of many events where we will be working alongside families to produce stimulating, innovative apps.”
