Commissioned by Left Field Labs to design/develop a tablet screensaver to be used on Google's Nexus 7.
The screensaver's brightness/speed is altered by the time of day, and uses the local weather conditions to effect the saturation and aggression of the movement.
App settings are updated every 20 seconds in the video to show some of the range in color and movement.
Runs in realtime at 1080p using GLSL shaders.
Commissioned in 2 days, a freaking blast to develop, not bad, amiright?
So much not shown in the video...
The world is fascinating. People and cultures inspire us. Sadly, the fast paced lifestyles of our generation result in many not taking the necessary step back to soak in the existing world around us. Our goal with this film is to help viewers further appreciate and take notice of the beauty in life & culture that lies within our world...
...so the next time you notice something that strikes you as interesting, stop for a second, start powering on your camera, think about why it's unique, and snap the shot before you miss it. Life is extraordinary. Embrace it.
