Hot Tools For Learning 3D Animation Basics

Read how the Kindle can aid you in your 3D Animation Career

Learning 3D Animation Basics On The Go

While sitting in front of your 22" LCD Screen day upon day may seem alluring to some, others might find the prospect of learning basic skills in 3D Animation 18 out of 24 hours a day, somewhat daunting. The secret to working around that when you find yourself stuck with a 200 page PDF document is none other than the Kindle.

Having the Kindle at your disposal(although somewhat of a luxury) is certainly worth its weight in gold to any beginner 3D Animator who sees themselves commuting into the city for work via public transportation, or simply aims to read under the tree on a quiet afternoon. Clearly, the alternative of an Animator carrying either a laptop or thick text book around would have the exact opposite effect of keeping everything as basic as possible when all solutions can be found with the Kindle.

Just check out the specifications I've listed below.

Advanced Design

Sleek & Light

At 10.2 ounces, Kindle is lighter than a typical paperback and as thin as most magazines. Barely a third of an inch in profile, you'll find Kindle fits perfectly in your hands.

Simple to Use, No Computer Required

Unlike most electronic devices, we wanted to keep Kindle simple. Kindle is wireless and ready to use right out of the box–no setup, no cables, no software to install, no computer required.

Ergonomic Design

Kindle is easy to hold and read. We designed it with long-form reading in mind. When reading for long periods of time, people naturally shift positions and often like to read with one hand. Kindle's page-turning buttons are located on both sides, allowing you to read and turn pages comfortably with one hand from any position.

Precise 5-Way Controller

Kindle has an easy-to-use 5-way controller, enabling precise on-screen navigation for selecting text to highlight or looking up words.

Summing it up

Considering that Amazon have made impressive headway from basic beginnings to this latest release, it's good to know they still have the Kindle in stock based on what I saw last week.

Given the chance for them to be an excellent gift for that tech-savy student, aspiring animator or just avid reader, it'd be wise to check out your future Wireless Kindle in person.
