Wow. In less than two days, Slit-Scan Camera has become one of the top ten free photo apps on the App store! We are so happy that so many people are downloading our little app.  Thanks everyone!

Today  FunnerLabs released our photo app: Slit-Scan Camera on the iTunes App Store. It was even picked as the “App of the Day” on Gizmodo. We were very proud, but noticed something funny when we checked the Australian App Store. Apple had censored the name “Slit-Scan Camera” and changed it to “S**t-Scan Camera.”

Slit-Scan photography is a technique that has been around since the 60′s. It is as innocent as any photo capture technique can be, but wow,  “S**t-Scan” makes it seem really, really dirty.

The overzealous censor bots have auto-replaced every instance of the word “slit” in our text and inadvertently created comic gold with lines like: “automagically move the s**t across the screen as it captures.” I like it, we sound so hardcore. My all time favorite auto-censored line is: “- Use the pinch/unpinch gesture to change the width of the s**t.”

Our newest app, Slit-Scan Camera has only been on the App store for a few short hours and it is already featured as the “App of the Day” on Gizmodo! We are thrilled and hope that lots of people try it out. We worked really hard making what we think is the slit-scan dream package. As the article states,  “the joy of taking wacky warped pictures is universal. And the Slit-Scan Camera iPhone app is like Photo Booth on acid.” The effects can be unbelievably surreal and it is an understatement that “Slit-Scan Camera can give you “some seriously strange glimpses of the world around you.” The feature list is quite deep and there is endless fun in experimenting with all the capabilities. We look forward to seeing what people do with it.

We were casually browsing iTunes App Store the other day and spotted a familiar looking little green alien. We scratched our heads and thought “haven’t we seen that guy somewhere before?” Yup, that’s right Alien Equation is a featured app in the Apps for Learning Math section! We are delighted to be among such good company and proud that our little app  is getting some exposure.

Ingredients:

4 ripe bananas

1 removable rotating tray from a microwave oven

1 iPhone or iPod Touch with our Slit-Scan Camera app installed

1 Tripod

1 candy bar

 

Directions:

Remove the rotating tray from the microwave oven. (Note- If you forget this step, don’t complain to us as you scrape molten banana napalm off your microwave walls.) Artfully arrange your bananas on the tray.

Attach your iPhone to the tripod and open the Slit-Scan Camera app. Aim the camera at your arrangement and compose the shot so that the bananas fill the frame.

Move the slit over an interesting section of the bananas and toggle the slit animation button to “off.” Hit the record button and slowly spin the microwave turntable by gently tapping opposite edges in different directions. When you have captured a decent sized image, tap the flashing record button to stop and then the image icon to go to the crop screen. Crop you image and save your masterpiece.

See, making art isn’t hard, but you don’t need to tell your friends that. Now unwrap and eat that candy bar, you deserve it.

Hi Folks,
Sorry for the radio silence. We’ve been working on a brand new App. I think it’s time for us to spill the beans. We’re making what’s called a slit-scan camera. It’s kind of a tool for visualizing movement over time and you can create some really trippy images with it. Here’s a little sample that our genius programmer Andy shot, he calls it “tulips with a twist.” On the left is what he was pointing the camera at while rotating, on the right is the result from slit scan camera.
 


 
We’re just putting the finishing touches on now and hope to have it up by the end of the week.

In this amazing and beautiful animation filmmaker Cristobal Vila illustrates different mathematic principles as they naturally occur. It’s so important for students and everyone to see that math has foundations in nature and isn’t just a bunch of disembodied numbers.

I’ve always been fascinated by the simplicity of the Fibonacci sequence and how it seems to show up everywhere.
