If you’re into pixel art you’ve probably heard of eBoy, they create the most amazing pixels worlds. Together with Delicious Toys they’ve developed a very nice iPhone/iPod Touch game called FixPix. It doesn’t have a revolutionary gameplay, they’ve sliced up their artwork into different layers and you have to put them back together by tilting you iPhone. Unfortenatly the app isn’t available yet, but this preview video made by Filip of CreativeApplications will give you a good idea what to expect.
If you have an apple computer and a webcam, then you’ve probably played around with Photo Booth. It’s so much fun! Mark Pernice made a picture of himself with Photo Booth and turned it into a mask. The result is awesome. He actually made the mask to make a new picture with Photo Booth while wearing it. He’ll used that picture for a self promotional poster.
The Sonic Wire Sculptor is an iPhone app version of a musical instrument by Amit Pitaru. It allows you to draw in 3D and turns your scribbles into sound. It is actually quite intuitive and anybody should be able to generate something nice with it.
Zach Gage did most of the programming with Amit’s support, but also Zach Lieberman and James Paterson. They’ve used the ofxIphone and openFrameworks open source libraries.
Maybe this looks quite familiar to you, you could actually call it the sound version of the drawing tool Rhonda, made by the same team.
Avatar Machine by Marc Owens is a wearable system which replicates the aesthetics and visuals of third person gaming, allowing the user to view themselves as a virtual character in real space via a head mounted interface. The system potentially allows for a diminished sense of social responsibility, and could lead the user to demonstrate behaviors normally reserved for the gaming environment.
