To personalize the meditation experience, the user can select two colours from a palette of over 60 colours, glow effect (on or off), the strobe rate, sequence, continuity, and beat sounds. The size of the area of the screen used for the strobe can also be modified. The user can also select how fast or slow the change in colours occurs (sudden or blended changes.)

In addition the regular strobe, spot strobes can now be used to create a collection of strobes in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. The entire collection strobes as one set. When using one or more spot strobes, the regular strobe can be turned off (with a minimizing pinch.)

When the app is removed from the foreground (for example during a phone call), any strobe effect is stopped and set to off. When the app is restarted, the strobe will not just pick up again where it left off.

Screen data is easily hidden during strobing, by simply double tapping the screen to hide or show the screen data.

The strobe effect can also be quickly cancelled (with the screen buttons hidden) by tapping the home button, or shaking the device.

Upgrade the app to create a larger collection of spot strobes, to retain spot strobe data between app loads, to double the sounds and spot strobe shapes, to turn off ads, and to help support future development of the app (by paying the developer).

The Strobe Machine is meant to allow the user to easily fall into a meditative trance. Do not use while operating heavy machinery, or while performing tasks which require undivided attention. Use the Strobe Machine prior to these activities to tap your inner resources which will allow you to excel.

Use wisely and most of all, enjoy life.

Interesting proof of concept

It needs a little more polish for me to sit down and meditate with it. The sounds were overall too jarring, though I liked the idea of the SOS and the heartbeat, and there are probably other standard rhythms it would be good to focus with. Also really wanted to change the strobe color and wanted the color to fill the screen, but on my phone at least there was a weird black border—it only filled about 4/5 of the screen. Still, promising. :)

Lose yourself


Easy to use and highly adaptable. There are many different settings to play with and once you find what you like you can meditate away.

It remembers the good old Disco' times

Great app! You can have a strobe in your hands, something very difficult in the old good days of Saturday Night Fever. I wish I had one in that time...
