:::: DESCRIPTION ::::
Uzu is a Generative Design Playground - a sort-of math-physics-art-toy for anyone who ever loved spirographs, fireworks, planetariums, lava lamps, light sabers, pen lasers, tesla coils, christmas lights, or graphing calculators.
Points of light will shoot across the screen and fly to your command, twirling in a vortex of color and motion. Freeze and move Uzu in 3d space while contorting spirographic curves with your fingers. Uzu lets you quickly switch between 10 different modes of real-time animation by simply changing the number of touches you're using. You can spend countless hours discovering the many unique ways of playing and interacting with Uzu.

Many thanks to all the fans who asked for the new update. And an even bigger thank you to Olga and Scarlett for their patience while I worked on this during evenings and weekends. I hope you all enjoy!
Love it - if you take the time to explore the options you could well blow your mind
Love this app, great fun.
1. Bring back the hide controls, maybe a slider option, loved that feature in the old version
2. Add a mic auto-driver, that way music can be used to drive the patterns - would buy this as an in-app option.
