Turn your camera into a live kaleidoscope, but not just any kaleidoscope - one that does hyperbolic tessellation! Best known as the effect used by MC Escher in his various Circle Limit prints, hyperbolic tessellation repeats images to infinity but never quite reaches the edge of a circle while doing so.

Generating these images with a computer use to take hours but can now be done instantly with live camera input of your iPhone 4 or iPad 2 (either front or rear camera).

Supports 27 different tessellation patterns (based on different number of sides in the basic shape and the number of shapes that meet at each vertex) with up to three different symmetry variations (not all configurations support all symmetry options).

Turn even the most boring scene into a fascinating piece of art!

a gem


Very nice on a 3rd-gen iPad, good presentation of tesselation options, no problems saving screenshots using app's camera button.

suggestions: (1) have status bar (bottom) indicate which camera is being used, (2) add a info document explaining the basic ideas for the transformations.

Love it!

Got The Eye

As a fan of M C Escher, I love the results of this app. I don't know why others are having a problem. I'm running io6 ver. I really would like to see an upgrade to see pix from my photo album! (Strong hint to developer!)



⭐⭐⭐ I occasionally reinstall it for fun, but it's not something I use very often due to its narrow focus and limited usefulness.
Still, it's a lot of fun and I've gotten my money's worth for certain! :)
I'd recommend for a dollar or less, or maybe more if symmetry/fractals/kaleidoscopic fx is really a central part of your artistic endeavors... ⭐⭐⭐
