It’s always nice to think of New Years day as a new beginning or a fresh start. We think we’ve found a stunning iPad app that will give you a fresh look at your world as the clock ticks down. Painting with Time app for iPad was just released by Red Hill Studios. Red Hill Studios is an award-winning Bay Area transmedia design company that creates interactive games for health, online science games and apps, and immersive museum exhibitions. They’ve also brought to you the Exploring Time documentary series. After spending just a few minutes with the Painting with Time app you’ll realize how brilliant this design idea is. We think this app for iPad will expand your view of the world and can even open your mind to possibilities.
The Painting with Time iPad app is very unique and entertaining. In short, this app allows you to have fun brushing on the iPad tablet and playing with the flow of time in a given landscape. (video demo and screenshots after break)
This app offers 14 custom image sets that let you explore the peculiar ways the world around you is changing by using your finger as a brush stroke. One of the image sets we played around with was the San Francisco over-a-day sequence that reveals the changing light of one of the world’s most beautiful cities. I got so lost in the moment of manipulating the beard growing image set. This allows you to brush and combine different time frames and create some intriguing facial fashion looks. Another included image set displays dramatic transformations caused by climate change which is a real eye-opener. My 7 year-old daughter was spellbound by watching me time-brush a woman’s face and reveal the aging process over 60 years.
Here are the features listed on the app store:
• 14 carefully crafted time sequences of nature, art, and people
• Painting Time manipulation mode
• Slicing Time manipulation mode
• Eight preset brushes and slicing patterns
• “Mix and Merge” capability to merge a variety of time views within composites
The developers have incorporated five different brush strokes to let you explore with. We really like the feature that allows you to time slice and change the image set to reveal a multi-image view of a given image. We think that you’ll not only enjoy the interactive touch time manipulation of these images but also how this app can help expand your daily view of the world.
