Uzu App

08/11/11  |  Posted by Niki Smith  |  Posted in Digital Canvas - Apps & Accessories

Looking for new apps to try out? Check out UZU! It's just $1.99 in the app store. Check out the video above to see it in action. Technically speaking, Uzu is a kinetic multitouch particle visualizer. Really it's a sort-of math-physics-art-toy for anyone who ever loved spirographs, fireworks, planetariums, lava lamps, light sabers, pen lasers, tesla coils, christmas lights, or graphing calculators. Points of light will shoot across the screen and fly to your command, twirling in a vortex of color and motion. Freeze and move Uzu in 3d space while contorting spirographic curves with your fingers. Uzu lets you quickly switch between 10 different modes of real-time animation by simply changing the number of touches you're using. You can spend countless hours discovering the many unique ways of playing and interacting with Uzu. Uzu is very happy when multiple people touch it. Uzu loves parties, children, music, cats, and pubs ? although not necessarily in that order. Uzu has many plans for the future, but Uzu would like to hang out with you now if that's cool. -
