"a pretty spectacular release for a first app" - Tim Webb, discchord.com

See complete video demo here: https://vimeo.com/165219555


K Machine is a generative and interactive audiovisual artworks, part musical instrument, part animation generator.
What you hear and what you see is generated on the fly, using semi-random behaviours, and no one will hear nor see exactly the same as you.

Shake your device to generate amazing diversity in the blink of an eye ! Travel in an infinite, never ending animation, and hunt for new fascinating audiovisual organisms : capture them on the fly with the screenshot tool, and share them with your friend, or use them as very unique wallpapers.

With the 'machine K', what you hear and what you see is generated on the fly, and no one will hear nor see the same.
