Spring Mesh, by Ricardo Sanchez, is an interactive application inspired by the movement of cloth in liquid, exploring mesh dynamics with box2D physics. Twist, pull, and deform a complex web of fabric with customizable frequency, force radius, mesh density, and color gradients. Mesh appearances include fills, wireframe, or points – when you’ve found the perfect combination, quickly and easily export stills to your photo library. According to Sanchez,
"SpringMesh was built using ofxBox2d physics addon for openFrameworks. It consists of a series of particles interconnected by springs, border particles are static allowing the mesh to maintain its original form, while inner particles repel, attract to user input (multitouch) or fall under gravity. Its colour is a direct representation of the forces applied, the stronger the force the lighter the colour.”
Spring Mesh is available for $1.99 in the iTunes Store.
