Sonaur [Android, Processing]

Sonaur is an ambient toy for Android created by Miles Peyton using Processing and PureData. It lays somewhere between an ecosystem and a musical instrument.

The hope is that sonaur requires less attention both, and still provides a reasonable amount of intrigue. 

It contains three distinct life forms and you can interact with them individually, or together; creating new sounds and visual patterns.

Sonaur was designed for newer devices: sounds and visuals are created generatively, which can be processor intensive. If you are using a first gen Android phone (i.e. HTC Hero) , you are discouraged from installing the app.
