Geometric Visualizer Toy hits 1.0 and becomes Geometric Visualizer Tool!

Geometric Visualizer Tool (GVT) is an entertaining geometry playground. Spawn 3 to 16 shapes (3 circles in various thicknesses and 6 other geometrically interesting patterns) in evenly distributed angles and watch the magic of math happen. Visually see the basic to complex shapes emerge as you progress deeper into the numbers. Control the Speed, Timeout, Growth Rate, Spawn Rate, Size, Rotation, Time Scale, and Gravity of the created shapes with your keyboard or the touchscreen controls. A number of graphical effects can be applied one or more at a time (like Warps and Pulses) and all effect parameters randomize with a touch or tap. Also includes a ColorMode (with a seperate set of effects) which delves more into the territory of screensaver or VJ tool. Lastly, a one shot mode is available for single blasts of 1 to 16 circles and larger blasts of 32,64,128, and 256 circles. All instructions are on screen and touchscreen controls can be brought by tapping the circle in the top right of the screen. ENJOY!

If you'd like to play with GVT in full screen mode, grab the free extension from the Chrome Web Store

PLEASE NOTE : I built no limits into how far you can push any of the particular parameters so turning anything too high can result in significant lag depending on the speed of your system. Pressing 'R' or the Reset button in touchscreen mode will start everything over.

Nice, though I would like to see more options, and maybe some sliders to change the values.

Really trippy and pretty neat to play with. Fun to see what happens when I use the randomize option. Good for what it is but some more substance would be nice, I.E. colors, etc. Keep making cool toys!

glad you enjoyed it. and yes, i agree, it was just a simple little concept i tried to implement but more options would be MORE FUN! :D i plan on adding rainbow mode, making an option to invert the colors (black background, white circles) and some other things floating around in my head (changing the number of circles etc.) THANKS!
