It’s here, it’s here! Get creative with your photography using the new Gumby ‘N Me app.
This fun new app allows you to insert Gumby, Pokey and the Blockheads into any photo taken on your iPhone. You can adjust the size and contrast of the characters and add text. Having a beach party? Message your friends with a photo of Gumby making a sandcastle with the gang, or share a photo on Facebook of you, your friends, Gumby and Pokey at a sporting event cheering for your team. The basic app is free, and once you’re in the app, you can purchase additional pose libraries, such as a sports pack or holiday pack.
Fans often send us photos of their Gumby bendable figures in unique situations and exotic places, such as in front of the Eiffel Tower or at a concert. This app is a great way to take Gumby wherever you go. Gumby can show up at any venue you photograph. Plus, it encourages you to stretch your imagination and be playful and creative with how you add Gumby into your scene. Create a work of art with a few clicks and swipes, and forward it on to cheer up a friend or generate some laughs. The possibilities are endless.

Gumby has a fun new app! Now you can be Gumby or Pokey as you message or chat. Intel’s new Pocket Avatar app creates instant animation. Simply record a message, and the app maps your voice and facial expressions onto an image of Gumby or Pokey. It’s instant animation. Send the message to friend via text or email to get the conversation started or post to your favorite social media sites.
How it works: The camera captures moving faces, lighting conditions and a range of emotions such as smiles, blinking eyes or kisses. The recordings are processed through an algorithm and then mapped on the avatar in real time to create personalized video messages. Emoticons have been a standard tool for expressions in text messaging. An animated chat that reflects a real person’s mood is more engaging. If a user is angry or happy, the avatar will show it.
“Gumby is thrilled to be one of the first Pocket Avatars! For generations, fans have formed lasting emotional connections with the character. Gumby–the world’s original clayboy–is a timeless icon and natural avatar. He is synonymous with ‘flexibility’ as he can morph into any shape. With his adventurous spirit, bright outlook on life and desire to leave a place better than how he found it, Gumby is loveable and irresistible. As the theme song says, ‘If you’ve got a heart, then Gumby’s a part of you!’ Everyone has a little Gumby (and Pokey) inside.” -Joe Clokey, President, Premavision/Clokey Productions
