Based in the city of Utrecht, the Netherlands, LiGHT-UP collective primarily consist of visual artists, performing artists and creative coders.

LiGHT-UP collective in-house developed drawing software is as much fun as it is innovative. It’s a drawing application that’s a bit similar to MS paint, only simplified and more intuitive. Designed to be used by everybody that’s able to hold a drawing tablet. Happytron supports a lot of devices as well; from midi controllers to Wacom tablets. The main controller is a Udraw gaming tablet made for the playstation 3, pictured to your left. It was then reversed engineered to support Happytron. Because of this gaming interface Happytron is very accessible for a young audience and the wireless technology makes it possible to collaborate with up to five person at the same time. With the Happytron technology LiGHT-UP collective has created an easy way of introducing people to the wonderful world of videomapping, motion graphic and animation in a playful and fun manner.
