We discussed PolyFauna last week, and now I have actually had a possibility to look and listen. This free app from the stone band Radiohead is a trippy portal to another dimension. You launch with a dark display that slowly lightens and you see a type of alien setting. Is that snow falling, or superstars? Am I under water? Just what are those strange skeletal animals floating by?
You browse by moving your screen in any kind of instructions. Now and then, a red orb shows up. Intersect it, and you’ll be carried somewhere else. You could pull on the display and make a few of your very own “life kinds.”
Just what’s it all for? The application is an experimental collaboration between Radiohead and Universal Every little thing, a quite imaginative U.K.-based design workshop. The imagery and the sounds originate from the tune Flower. You’ll have to take it from there. I located the application convincing to discover, although I did obtain some people questioning what I was doing when tested it at lunch.
The app is most ideal with earphones, with directional impacts and immersive audios to choose the visuals. It’s fun to explore, and the application fully utilizes the directional sensors provided by iOS hardware.
PolyFauna is an universal app. It needs iOS 7.0 or later on, and it’s maximized for the iPhone 5. I’ve placed some display grabs in the gallery, yet you will certainly view different points as you explore increasingly more heavily into the strange world PolyFauna develops.
