Dassault Systems on Tuesday announced
Cosmic Blobs Deluxe, a new version of their 3D design software for kids. What’s more, the company has also introduced a new collection of expansion packs.
Cosmic Blobs helps teach kids the basics of 3D design and animation using fun-to-use tools that let kids shape models the same way they’d use modeling clay, then animate them, put them in background scenes, add music and sound effects and more.
Cosmic Blobs Lab Rat Edition Deluxe Version costs $39.99 and comes with new surface paint and image stickers. Performance has been improved, and the software now supports Intel Macs with a Universal binary.
The Cosmic Blobs Expansion Pack Collection is a boxed set of previously released thematic add-ons for Cosmic Blobs, including decals, animations, music and other multimedia objects. Included are Castles & Kingdoms; Extreme Sports; Stylin’! and Pirate Treasure. It’s been released for $19.99.
Both products are available as hybrid CD-ROMs for Mac OS X and Windows. A free trial version is available for download from the Web site.
