The Creation Station toy kit promises to deliver a tidal wave of low resolution, squirm inducing kid’s home video nonsense to the Web before you can say Steve Spielberg Sucks. The box comes complete with a green screen, compositing software and a VGA res camera with tripod. The kicker is the automatic YouTube upload, which sends shivers up the spine immediately. As does the TV ad previewed on the site. This does not bode well for the future of Internet video, peeps. Priced from $99.99 and up. And up…???
The RipRoar Creation Station includes a full resolution camera with a mountable green screen, tripod, integrated software and a bonus content CD. Kids simply record themselves or their friends in front of the green screen and effortlessly produce their own short movie by replacing the green with any background, cutting and pasting video and images, and adding animation and/or music. Once completed, users (with their parents’ assistance) can share their creation with family and friends by using the special one-click feature to upload to YouTube or any on-line video sharing site.
