Perler approached Phunware to create a digital experience to supplement their physical products. Perler makes a set of plastic beads that, when melted with an iron, form to make a single design. Beads can be placed on the peg board freeform or with the help of a template. We built an iPad app that allows users to create their own templates with the help of software. I love the merger of the digital and physical world.
Merging Physical With Digital
Perler created an iPad accessory called the iPegboard, and I helped design and build the accompanying iPad app. The iPegboard tray fits right over your iPad so you can follow the pattern on the screen. After the beads are placed, you can lift the pegboard off the tray and iron the design.
