Wallace and Gromit ‘Chat-O-Matic’ app launched by Aardman Rights and Widebeam Digital

A Wallace and Gromit ‘Chat-O-Matic’ app has been launched today by Aardman Rights with app developers Widebeam Digital.

The app, which is available on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, is pre-loaded with 48 Wallace sayings, including “Someone’s been at me cheese” and "Hold tight lad and think of Lancashire hot pot". In ‘Chat-O-Matic’ mode, fans can select their favourite phrases and when they turn their Apple device over and place it under their nose they have the animated mouth and voice of Wallace.

Robert Goodchild, head of licensing at Aardman Rights, said: “In true Aardman style, the ‘Chat-O-Matic’ App breaks mobile and animation boundaries by utilising pre-captured frames and reanimating them within the app in real time to create a very realistic Wallace that we all know and love.”

Joe Morsman, senior developer at Widebeam Digital, added: “It’s been a pleasure working with the Aardman team to develop this groundbreaking app. We have utilized the latest technology to bring Wallace to life in a fresh and innovative way that we’re certain will engage fans of all ages.”
