Nicosia, Cyprus – Binary Noise Ltd today is pleased to announce Kaleidoscope Camera 1.5 for iOS, their advanced, interactive, live-view Kaleidoscope Camera application. Both a camera and an exploratory visual toy, Kaleidoscope Camera features a digital kaleidoscope with six different symmetry configurations, including an infinite spiral and a mesmerizing mandala, turning an iPhone or iPad into an artistic camera that can create complex kaleidoscopic photographs. The current update adds support for the Retina display on the New iPad.
With Kaleidoscope Camera, kaleidoscopes are no longer limited to old school toys with hexagonal mirror configurations. Kaleidoscope Camera transforms images via a user’s mobile device camera, creating an opportunity for visual play and artistic photography. This unique app takes a live camera view and multiplies it using advanced symmetries to produce artistic views and photographs, even from everyday objects.
Creating kaleidoscopic art with Kaleidoscope Camera is effortless. Users simply aim the camera at an object or scene, choose from one of six symmetry configurations, and press the camera button to take the photo. Complex, ever-changing patterns give users the opportunity to choose the resulting image. Users may influence the pattern of the kaleidoscope by manipulating the image on the screen through finger swipes. Users may change the direction or speed of the spin, as well as zoom in on the image. Using the photographer-facing camera, the app can also be used to create kaleidoscopic portraits. The photographs made by Kaleidoscope Camera can be saved onto the user’s device or shared instantly via email, Facebook, or Twitter.
More than an artistic camera, Kaleidoscope Camera may be used as a traditional kaleidoscope. Capturing the whimsical play of light, color, and patterns, this application provides a rich kaleidoscopic experience. The app features smooth animation, fluid, realistic interactivity, and highly optimized performance. With its user-friendly graphical interface, Kaleidoscope Camera provides an experience that is easy to use for the most non-technical of users. The artistic capabilities of this application make it an app that will appeal to photographers and artists of any age.
