PirTie is a visual that is similar to tie die. It uses simplistic math mapped smoothly onto a sphere. The angle of vision can be widened to see more of the mapping. That is done using the pinch zoom feature. The pan gesture will rotate the sphere. There are many images, some will look similar at first glance, but at a closer look, it is probably at least slightly different. Double tap for a new picture. Triple tap to snap a portrait or landscape high resolution photo. Single tap to change colors.

TVOut feature with proper hookup.


**WARNING** This has rotating color and/or flashing/flickering light, which can cause seizures in persons with photosensitive epilepsy. If you have any form of seizures, epilepsy, visual photosensitivity, or wear a pacemaker you should not use this app or any like it without consulting your physician first.

In addition, even if you have never had a seizure, there is a small chance that you or a friend are photosensitive, and exposure to flashing light can or may cause a seizure. It is not recommended to use this app for long periods of time. If you are not willing to accept this risk, please do not use this app or show to anyone without accepting responsibility.

Psychedelic colors and patterns

Pops out best when viewed in a dark room. I like how it is both interactive and automatic. Sometimes you just want to let it do its thing without having to constantly interact with it.

Groovy, baby!

It reminds me of Austin Powers!

Seriously though, it is a beautiful, colorful app. It almost looks like a music visualizer, except that you can zoom in and out and bend the colors to your liking.

It also supports TV-out. How cool would that be for a party?
