    It’s not an iOS app, it’s a Mac OS app:

    Requirements: OS X 10.6 or later, 64-bit processor

    This is really cool, but, like HDR photography, I think the allure might wear off once you see it everywhere.

    Huh, they have this as one of the toys in Kinect Party. Neat to know its name and history.

    Pretty nifty looking, but thank Gawd it doesn’t last any longer than that. Nausea soon to follow.

      Some people think it is the Slit-scan, but those of us who know better, know that Denver always looks this way.

  12. So who’s doing the equivalent process for sound? E.G., timeshifting a waveform so that the highest frequencies occur first, the lowest frequencies last?

    It’s the soundtrack that lets you know this is a Pesco post. Beautifully strange indeed.
