Disco.app quite literally … burns … CDs and DVDs


play_blip_movie_90597();This is the kind of immersive experience that I think is going to make apps start to feel more like video games… Is it gimmicky? For sure. But does it reflect a new way to express activity and a more subtle and potentially more intuitive replacement visualization for those barbershop progress meters? I think just maybe!

Think Winamp visualizations come to life and then some:

So yeah, we’ve gone from flashing screens to creating a pixel perfect fluid dynamic model of smoke. You can adjust the colors on the fly as well as a few other geeky options. When you blow into the microphone, the smoke gusts, and as you can see, you can run your mouse through it to create wind. We’ll be including presets for Fire, Goo, Purple Haze, and Icy Mist for you to play with.
