Animated Animations Introduces LumiceL[TM]
NEW YORK--The Animated Animations Company LLC has introduces Lumicel[TM], a new art form unveiled last month at Artexpo New York.
At first glance, Lumicel[TM] appears to be a composite animation sheet featuring Animated Animations characters. But, said company officials, it comes to life with lighting, music and sound effects using ION[TM] technology so there are no buttons, speakers or switches. Once ION[TM] is activated, a section of the model sheet is illuminated and an accompanying sound-byte is played.
"Lumicel is a new and exciting kind of animation art," said Marc Segan of Animated Animations.

For us, it's the marriage of technology and art brought to a truly new level."
