New app - VK: Video Kaleidoscope, live visual effects **Promo codes added**
I'm proud to present my new app: VK: Video Kaleidoscope. It's a realtime video kaleidoscope, but taken a bit further. It uses live video from the camera (front or back), then uses some nifty effects to combine mirrored images, rather than just mirroring, so it's totally unique. I've spent a lot of time polishing too. The video shows what it can do:
I can't post links or screenshots unfortunately But a quick search on the app store for VK will find it, or there's an app store link on the video page.
The video was recorded by attaching an iPhone to a video camera (with cardboard and rubber bands!) and walking around with it, so that's an excellent representation of what it's like. Well, quality is a lot higher than it looks, the video camera is pretty bad.
To use it, you literally just point the camera at anything, and move around. There's a selection of 5 effects, all with quite different results. There's a built-in camera, built-in photo library + photo viewer, and built-in sharing via email or facebook (you can post directly to your wall from within the app!).
It's using the video processor in the iPhone to create the effects, so it runs at a nice, smooth 30fps (the maximum the built-in camera can provide).
Requirements: iPhone 3GS or 4, or iPod Touch with camera, iOS 4.0 or later. It will probably run on iPad2 as an iPhone app, but I'll update it to fully support the iPad 2 as soon I can get my hands on one - expect HD support, video out, and some heavy use of that new GPU!
