Created by James Alliban and inspired by Cubist work, Fracture is an iPhone application that allows you to paint cubist style portraits using your own photographs. As in cubist art, the photos are analysed according to their colour composition, then broken up and re-assembled to new triangle based composition not loosing the sight of the original subject. In Fracture, you can choose up to six different photographs from your library of camera, preferably from different angles and create new photo assemblages. Various options are included such as the ability to adjust outline and shape alpha, blur the content of triangle, average the colour and other. By “drawing” on the screen you endlessly overlay your photographs with segments of the six photos generating unique and very successful cubist like composition.

Created using openFrameworks.

- Noby Noby Boy [iPhone] The long awaited Noby Noby Boy from Keita Takahashi is now available in the AppStore. We wrote about it few times in the past, most recently only few days ago with the release of wonderful videos but now we can finally immerse ourselves in the wonderful world Keita has created. What first started as a PS3 downloadable, described as a virtual playground than a game (fingergaming), Noby Noby Boy puts players in control of a stretchable, snake-like creature that can devour objects in the world around him. Keita first revealed his intentions to create an iPhone version of the at this year's Game Developers Conference, since then we have been eagerly awaiting the iPhone release. I, unfortunately (still waiting for my PS3) never played the PS3 version but from what I have seen and read there was something that instantly drew me in. I don't think these were the graphics or gameplay but rather the combination of both creating a world you are both unfamiliar and familiar with. A visual playground navigated by a creature as absurd as objects surrounding it. Is this absurdity that I enjoyed or was it the peculiar, unfamiliar and the exciting 'never seen before'. I think it is my déformation professionnelle being an architect that always makes me question things but this may be why I enjoy things that sometimes are not clear nor easy to comprehend. At the same time some things do not need be understood to be enjoyed but rather it is our emotional response that may draw you in. If iPhone as an object of commodity fetishism, it is perfect for such absurdity. Whether this be only a self-expression, Noby Noby Boy takes over your device. If Apple would allow background processes, I could see Noby Noby Boy taking all the foreground. Your calendar would suddenly have a creature crawling all over it and while you scan for address book contacts there would be a fairy stealing all your numbers. Noby Noby Girl would grow so long, that you would have only a single chance to scroll to "z" and before you knew it the 'A' would spring back. You may ask why, and with that I say "why not". The only limitations to Noby Noby Boy are iPhone hardware limitations or to be more correct is what Apple would approve. Noby Noby Boy makes use of GPS, Camera, Email, Music, Time, Photo Library, Safari Browser and so much more. I do not think there is an app in the appstore that makes use of iPhone services as much as Noby Noby Boy does. I could go on and explain what each one of them does but I prefer to leave that to you, to discover via each and every wonderful little pop up. If you already have the app, you know of all the things I mention here. If you 'aven't got it yet, well, time to stop reading this post, find the iTunes button below and buy now. This is the one for all. Noby Noby Boy, please save the world from this boredom! p.s. It's a GTD app too! =] Platform: iPhone Version: 1.0 Cost: $1.99 Developer: NAMCO BANDAI Games […]

- ToyCamera [iPhone] ToyCamera is aÂ simple photo application that turns your iPhone into a fun toycamera. CreatedÂ byÂ Takayuki Fukatsu (iTunes link)it's his prime photo app for taking quick pics and applying quick photo effects. First released in October last year and most recently 2.01 version, ToyCamera is about point, shoot and share. In this process, by default, you are greeted with surprise effect applied to your photo. Every time you take a shot a random effect us applied to it. If you do wish not to include some of the effects you can change this is the app settings. If you prefer to use only a single effect you can do this by disable all those that you do not want to use, all but one.Â ToyCameraÂ brings youÂ a set of image editing workflows that are automated for your convenience to produce exciting modifications to your photographs in a single click. The app takes photos inÂ 800x600 or 600x600 resolution (crop option available) and they areÂ automaticallyÂ saved into your Camera Roll library. Available effects are:Â Vintage Green effect,Â Vintage Warm effect,Â Vintage Yellow effect,Â Low Saturation,Â High Saturation,Â Toning Sepia,Â Black & White,Â HiCon Black&White. In addition, uploader is included to theÂ BigCanvas Photoshare. Some may find ToyCamera lacking features and options but this is precisely the point. Â If we think about photoshop as a worflow tool, thee are a number of steps required to take a photo, edit it using tools available in PS, optimize size and upload to a social networking site or Flickr. Now this is a task may take anything from 15-30 min. Trying to replicate this process on a mobile device giving a number of choices along the way would be wrong. Instead, as demonstrated by many apps in the appstore, these workflows areÂ usuallyÂ translated into single functionality apps that provide a quick way of automated workflows to create content. A good way to think about this is saved actions in Photoshop that may include photo import, effect and upload to a site of your choice. This is exactly what ToyCamera is. ToyCamera for the iPhone is the modern version of what the original name suggests:Â simple, inexpensive film boxÂ camerasÂ made almost entirely out ofÂ plastic, often including theÂ lens. The term is misleading, since they are not 'toys' in the sense that these cameras are actually capable of taking photographs.....Â Many professional photographers have utilized toy cameras and the often strange optical effects of their inexpensive lenses to take award-winning photographs....such as the annual Krappy Kamera show at the Soho Photo Gallery in the TriBeCa neighborhood of New York City. Wikipedia If you love taking photos, regardless of whether you are good or bad at it,Â ToyCamera is a great way to create images that will surprise you and amaze others. A must app for all in love withÂ photography. See some examples below, photos I have taken, and much more on this Flickr group.

- Type Drawing [iPhone] TypeDrawing is an iPhone app that lets you drawing with letters! Type a sentence or word you want to say, set the background, choose the font and draw. Just released version 1.1 adds function to set background paper from photo album or by taking a picture with the camera. Multi-language & PDF export will be supported soon but for now, save to library button helps avoid the cumbersome screengrab combo. TypeDrawing originally started with an online project in year 2005 which already includes many interesting drawings. Only a small disappointment is that the iPhone app can't upload/add pictures to the online project. Understandable of course as the online flash app would most probably require a rewrite. For now, you are invited to join this Flickr group to share your Type Drawings. TypeDrawing is nevertheless a fun new way to explore drawing type and a valuable addition to the ever growing number of great drawing apps on the iPhone. Main Features: - Type a sentence or word - Choose a font - Choose a background paper - Save your artwork at Photo Album Platform: iPhone Version: 1.1 Cost: $0.99 Developer: Hansol […]
- Touch Vision Interface [openFrameworks, Arduino, Android] Created by Teehan+Lax Labs, Touch Vision Interface is a combination of software and hardware to allow realtime manipulation of content on a remote device via touch interface on a mobile device. Instead of purely using mobile device screen as an input, the user views the remote content and applies the content simultaneously, better know but not necessarily a form of AR. I can still recall the first time I saw an Augmented Reality demo. There was a sense of wonderment from the illusion of 3D models living within the video feed. Of course, the real magic was the fact that the application was not only viewing its surrounding environment, but also understanding it. AR has proven to be an incredible tool for enhancing perception of the real world. Despite this, I’ve always felt that the technology was somewhat limited in its application. It is typically implemented as output in the form of visual overlays or filters. But could it also be used for user input? We decided to explore that question by pairing the principles of AR (like real-time marker detection and tracking) with a natural user interface (specifically, touch on a mobile phone) to create an entirely new interactive experience. The translation of touch input coordinates to the captured video feed creates the illusion of being able to directly manipulate a distant surface. Peter imagines future applications of this technology both in the living room or in large open spaces. Brands could crowd-source easier with billboard polls, group participation on large installations could feel more natural. Likewise other applications could include music creation experience where each screen becomes an instrument. The possibilities become even more exciting when considering the most compelling aspect of the tool – the ability to interact with multiple surfaces without interruption. No need to switch devices through a secondary UI – simply touch your target. You could imagine a wall of digital billboards that users seamlessly paint across with a single gesture. Created using opencv-android, openframeworks and python/arduino for the led matrix. Touch Vision Interface (Thanks […]
