Edenbridge, United Kingdom – UK based independent developer Paul Gee is donating all profits from EyeStalk the Dalek camera app to fund episode 4 of The Minister of Chance until Wednesday 8th August. EyeStalk is a Whovian’s dream come true transforming any iOS device equipped with a camera into the EyeStalk of a Dalek.
The Minister of Chance is a free sci-fi series that stars Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Tamsin Greig, Paul Darrow, Jenny Agutter – and loads more! It’s funded solely by contributions.
91p (or $1.40) from each download of the EyeStalk app will be donated to episode 4 of The Minister of Chance to help them on their way to achieving their $10,000 target.
Using image processing EyeStalk can process any image/video and apply one of five styles, ranging from 1960’s black and white to the latest Paradigm vision system. A live overlay gives a preview of the processed image to line up the perfect shot or capture the perfect video.
Simple on-screen controls allow full control of the camera’s flash mode, the option to switch between rear and front cameras (where available), access to the iOS photo library to view photos/videos taken or apply effects to previously taken photos/video using the iOS camera app or EyeStalk itself. The ability to swipe left or right to change camera effect allows the user to quickly switch EyeStalk mode.
Version 1.0.3 adds a new Destiny effect.
