Shy kids at the Disneyland.

Many kids might have Disneyland as one of dream places in their mind. However, being in the theme park could be an overwhelming experience for some cautious children particularly who are more sensitive than others. The Dream Camera aims to make kids’ get-a-way in Disneyland more ideal.

Kids might be afraid to meet some characters.
 
It's quite common for young children to be afraid or even shy when they meet the characters for the first time, and understandably so, since some of them are more than twice a child’s size!
 
 
A camera is a perfect tool for overcoming shyness.
 
According to the veteran photographer, David Hurn, photography is a perfect tool for overcoming shyness.
In this sense, if some kids feel shy or even afraid of uncomfortable circumstances, e.g., confronting characters, a camera could be a highly useful icebreaking tool to overcome barriers in their mind by letting children taking pictures. There is no need to pose Then when you come home they will still have a picture to remember meeting the characters but don’t have to pose for a photograph.
Augmented Reality & Gamification
 
One of the reasons that some kids feel uncomfortable when they are in Disneyland could be circumstances that they face as it might be something unexpected. For instance, Giant Micky, Tinkerbell and any other characters that they might confront in their own eyes. 
 
An augmented reality and gamification might help kids feel Disneyland more comfortable as those are powerful tools to who are introvert. They can enjoy time in Disneyland, clearing missions from the device.
 

Inspired by works of Pieter Mondriaan
 
Various colours that represent Disney characters make cameras more characteristic and vivid.
Black lines on cameras is a metaphor of outlines of Disney comic books.
