Uzu is the best light manipulation app out there. The app lets you interact in 10 different ways. Uzu adjusts the animation of light differently depending on how many fingers you have touching the screen. The app also sends video through the video out cable allowing you to perform with Uzu. The app is simply amazing. And if you want it on your iPhone, there is Little Uzu available (link below).

"This is doodling for digital natives . . . mind blowing." - Wired Magazine

"This is absolutely the coolest iPad app I’ve ever come across. Heck, it’s likely the most awesome app for ANY device ever." - Chris Pirillo


Uzu is a Generative Design Playground - a sort-of math-physics-art-toy for anyone who ever loved spirographs, fireworks, planetariums, lava lamps, light sabers, pen lasers, tesla coils, christmas lights, or graphing calculators.

Points of light will shoot across the screen and fly to your command, twirling in a vortex of color and motion. Freeze and move Uzu in 3d space while contorting spirographic curves with your fingers. Uzu lets you quickly switch between 10 different modes of real-time animation by simply changing the number of touches you're using.
