In the last days of 2009, I started poking my fingers into 2 new toys: openframeworks and the iphone.
I’ll probably write a separate post about openframeworks, both because I’m totally in love with it and because I really want to talk about the great week I had during Zach‘s workshop at Fabrica; the only thing I’m anticipating is that OF‘s iphone port made my coding experience on Apple’s little, trendy device very, very comfortable (did anyone say old school c++, no objective-c?).
Anyway, in the video below, you can see my first iphone app: it’s called squiddy, the bloody mess, it’s silly, useless, but definitely more fun then printing “hello world” on the screen.
As you can see, you can drop pink thingies tapping the screen and drag them around with your finger; as pink thingies can’t really swim on their own, you can also move them by tilting and rotating the iphone. The sound are samples made with a korg synth.
