[prMac.com] Yokohama, Japan - TECHxART today is pleased to announce new artwork: Dancing Cloth iPhone app. Dancing Cloth is a brand new 3D interactive art using 3D physics simulation technology, which shows users beautiful and realistic animation of the symmetric cloth. The shape always deform like lifeforms, color gradation changes smoothly and the curves and edges draw unpredictable patterns. By tapping screen, cloth flies and viewpoint moves. It gives users a feeling of floating in space with cloth.
"Before you think, please watch the video. If you are interesting in technology or art, you will like it." said Kyoko Kondo, PR Manager at TECHxART. "We would appreciate it if you could leave us feedback on our fan page."
The concept of Dancing Cloth is to rediscovery the beauty of physics. It is neither only just an entertainment nor just a technology demonstration. It provides users new experiment to feel the gravity through the animation.
In addition, Dancing Cloth is a good demonstration app to show the potential of iPhone/iPod device. By using OpenGL, it generates almost real-time 3D animation responding to user's interaction. Extended physics simulation technology creates not only realistic but also beautiful motion of symmetric cloth. Accelerometers, microphone and touch screen allows users to control gravity and manipulate cloth intuitively.
