Along with my friends Andy and Brian at FunnerLabs, I am proud to announce the release of our newest app: Slit-Scan Camera for iPhone. Slit-Scan Camera will create some seriously trippy images on the iPhone 3gs and higher and the 4th Generation iPod Touch and higher.
While standard photos give you a full frame image of a single moment, slit-scan photography captures the world one line at a time. You end up with a two dimensional image where one dimension is continuously and chronologically displaced. It is not a warping filter or effect applied in post. You have probably seen the effect in movies like when the Enterprise stretches into warp speed, or the final sequence of 2001, but you can see it in action in our trailer.
We had a blast playing around with it and hope you do too. The basic version is free, with a $1.99 in-app upgrade to the higher resolution, ad-free version with additional controls. We can't wait to see what you do with it.
It has only been on the App store for a few hours and is already featured as the "App of the Day" on Gizmodo!
