Product Description

Gravilux lets you draw with stars: it’s a combination of painting, animation, art, science, and gaming. As you touch Gravilux's screen, gravity draws simulated stars to your fingertips. You can tease and twist the particles into galaxies, or explode them like a supernova. You can color stars by their speed, change the strength of gravity, number of stars, their color, and even enable antigravity. Multiple fingers and multiple people can touch the screen at once, collaborating or competing. Gravilux was first released as a work of interactive art by Scott Snibbe Studio that was only available in galleries and museums. Now it’s available as an Android application.

Gravilux's creator, Scott Snibbe, is an interactive artist who has collaborated with popular musicians and filmmakers including Björk and James Cameron.

"Apps like Gravilux awaken an 'Avatar'-like sensitivity to electricity in the body, power in the palms and general connectedness." - NY Times
"Every once in a while, an app will come along that has no practical application whatsoever but is just SO COOL that you have to have it! Gravilux is that sort of app." --iphoneapplicationlist.com
"Of the millions of apps out there, none quite capitalize on the sheer fun and beauty of interactivity the way that Scott Snibbe’s do.” --CoolHunting

An app that is relaxing and works well on the KF - especially in color. I do like the demo being in video format, rather than photos.

Mindless swirling, quick tinkering with the settings, or a precise calibration of size, colour, gravity, and space...whichever way you decide, it produces beautiful images across the screen. HTC Evo 4G.

I would glady sacrifice my battery life for this cool app!!! That is, if it were a live wallpaper. even though it's the free app of the day and nice to play with....I can't see myself passing with it any longer than 2 mins. I'm sure a lot went into this app but I think it would be cooler if it were a live wallpaper

This app is addictive and relaxing. Only issue is that the menu is glitchy. At times, only the color menu is available. At others, the main settings menu is available, but freezes. Sometimes the main menu opens, but the color option isn't on it. It's a minor issue though, because there's. no real point to the game anyway. It's just a relaxing way to kill time, and it does that regardless of the specific mode it's in.

Finally we get a FAotD that's not geared towards kids.This app is definitely worth the download, especially with its small size. Very cool, and satisfies the astrophysicist within me.

And I can say it in one word...AWESOME!!! Thank you, Scott Snibbe Studio, for submitting this; and thank you Amazon for making this a FAotD (although I would happily shell out $1.99 for this app (yes, it's that good)).

If you actually take your time with this you can create some really cool looking designs. Play around with the gravity settings, start off on the low end. I was not expecting this app to be this fun.
Thanks Scott
