The Human Body is the first release from design studio Tinybop as part of their Explorer’s Library series that seeks to “help children develop a foundational understanding of the world.” The immersive anatomy app for kids features some great artwork work from illustrator and designer Kelli Andersen who created 200+ illustrations of bones, veins, muscles and other components that comprise the interactive environment as well as the stop motion video above. The app is extraordinarily well conceived and designed, every attempt to pry the iPad out of my son’s hands so I can actually try it myself have failed. Get it here. (via Kottke, Swissmiss)
Poly is a new geometric drawing app for the iPad by Seoul-based interaction designer Jean-Christophe Naour of Innoiz. The program lets you import imagery and trace it geometrically while it averages color based on data within each triangular field. Can’t wait to try it out, it looks gorgeous.
Today Moog releases the Filtatron for the iPhone, probably one of the more advanced sound apps ever made for the iOS platform. I’d be stepping out of my comfort zone to discuss “four-pole resonant Moog Ladders” or that the “sound quality and can be modulated by its own LFO” — I have no idea what this means, but does it sound awesome? Yes. And if I can whip up a follow-up track to Popcorn by Hot Butter using my phone while riding the train, well excuse me if I don’t post for awhile, I’ll be modulating my Moog Ladder.
