App DescriptionUsing live video from the built-in camera and high-end realtime processing, VK: Video Kaleidoscope can create beautiful works of art with delicate patterns or nightclub VJ style visuals (please note that it displays video but doesn't record). The traditional kaleidoscope is taken into a whole new realm with this intuitive and highly polished app. VK processes live camera video at 30fps with no lag. It really is instant entertainment.
See our video for an idea of what it looks like, though you really need to try the app to fully appreciate the effects: http://vimeo.com/irt/vk
Both front and rear cameras are supported and there is a selection of 5 effects (more are planned for future updates), each designed to bring out the image in a different way. You can capture the moment with the instant built-in camera, and a high-quality built-in photo viewer stores your collection. It's an instant way to create astonishing iPhone wallpaper or surprise friends with psychedelic photos.
Social sharing is well covered and extremely easy to use. From the photo album you can share photos via in-app email, or send them directly to Facebook (it posts photos directly to your wall with just a couple of taps). VK will soon be updated to support iPad 2, taking full advantage of the new video processor and providing live video out for performance use.
Check out the screenshots - all are made from everyday scenes and objects.
