I used a potentiometer as a joystick controlling the graphics on the computer. For demonstration purposes, I’ll show partial source code used in the above application (communication part only).

One of my drawings became the cover art of Simian Mobile Disco‘s new album, Unpatterns, with which you will experience impressive Moiré patterns both on CD and vinyl. The shape of the drawing is inspired by Bridget Riley‘s Riley Waves.

There is also an associated iPhone app, where you can listen to their full album with interactive contents same as my Moiré app plus exclusive shapes. This is also a part of the collaboration.

Available on the App Store

My newest iPhone app Moiré is ready. The app dynamically generates Moiré pattern, an interference pattern created by multiple regular patterns overlaid on each other. The app offers the following features:

  • Simple interface. You can control the app without instructions.
  • 36 basic patterns. The number of generated Moiré is infinity.
  • Wallpaper creation. You can use resultant images as a wallpaper of your device.

Here are some example images. You can see more on Moiré Homepage.

The app is greatly inspired by the book Moiré Index by Carsten Nicolai. Since the book doesn’t offer dynamic contents, I would like to do so.

Now on App Store

Moiré is now on App Store for $1.99.

I am pleased to announce that my new iPad app “Pscope for iPad” is released on App Store at July 01, 2010. Pscope (Pentagonal kaleidoscope) is a kaleidoscope-like image generator interacting with a user’s touch. Using photo images, Pscope displays pentagonal-shaped image segments spread on the screen.

General kaleidoscope iPhone/iPad apps on App Store uses a triangle patch as its mirror segment. Using several unique patterns of pentagonal mirror tiling, Pscope gives a user more unexpected and surprising experience. The generated image animates according to the user’s finger place touching on the screen. The user can freely customize segments’ size and shape as well as tiling pattern with 14 different types of pentagonal tilings human beings ever found (see below).

Unlike most kaleidoscope iPhone apps, Pscope uses a photography or image as its input instead of using camera data. This is just because iPad does not have any camera function. However thanks to a larger screen of iPad, one will have richer experience than on the screen of iPhone.

Here is several examples how Pscope for iPad works.

– An input image that I made long time ago (from [Flash] fla06 – boreal-kiss.com).

– Generated image by Pscope using Cairo pentagonal tiling

– Generated image by Pscope using Floret pentagonal tiling

– Generated image by Pscope using Prismatic pentagonal tiling
