Well we’re almost there, I’ve got most of the features in place for my iPhone app ‘Zio’ – an interactive visualiser based on my generative animation system used in Music Is Math, The Nest That Sailed The Sky etc.
Presently you can change most of the branching and shading and can easily navigate with dragging/pinch zoom and rotate. You can pause the animation at any time and still interact/move around, and also save pictures to your photo library.
The interface is just a temporary one at the minute for testing, it will be redesigned and probably have twice as much features seen in the demo – including particle motion and trails and the ability to tweak the underlying math and algorithms.
This demo is a screen cap of the iPhone simulator – at times the frame-rate is jerky – but actually runs okay on the real device! (don’t know why that should be).
I’m taking a short break for the minute and off to Austria this week to pick up my award.
