Glitchbeam is a multi-touch interactive art app and visualizer that is always moving. Multi-colored beams grow, fold, bounce, and spin around as you tap, drag, and turn your device.

Glitchbeam was inspired by my curiosity and love of architecture, origami, prisms, and alternate dimensions. Created with openFrameworks. Programmed and designed by Jason Walters.

Spring - Controls the bounce
Speed - Force of gravity
Freeze - Decrease to create motion trails
Ghost - Opacity of the particles
