A psychedelic creative and relaxation tool
by on September 20, 2010
An interesting look at the wonders of motion and the natures of physics , Gravitarium for iPad is an artistic blend of creativity, inspiration and relaxation.
With calming, relaxing, mellow music, the stars of constantly changing colours can be manipulated and warped via multitouch controls to any area of the iPad’s expansive screen to create psychedelic patterns and shapes that appear to bend and twist, swirl and swoop in seemingly impossible ways.
Varying finger placements and the number of digits used manipulate the coloured stars in contrasting manners whist selecting the inverse option from Gravitarium’s settings forces the transforming shapes to be pushed out rather than the standard drawing in to create waves of motion that are reminiscent of a David Attenborough nature show.
A one touch photo button grabs a screenshot of the creations made and automatically stores it in your iPad’s photo gallery where it can be shared, saved or set as a calming background to your tablet device.
Whilst the longevity of entertainment and enjoyment in the Gravitarium app are questionable, for the short term at least it can be used as the new age, iPad version of those stress releasing squishy balls.
