An Astounding Blend of Art and Science

Now retina enabled! See gorgeous images in HiDPI on Apple's latest MacBook Pro laptops.

Chaos Responds to Your Every Movement

A million colored points shift and swirl as you interact with this experimental art app using the Leap Motion Controller™. Use two hands to control the colorful cloud, and use one hand to move the camera. Access advanced controls to further refine the appearance of the Beautiful Chaos.

Explore the Unseen

An infinite variety of futuristic, abstract shapes are produced by the mathematical formulas underlying this exciting app that blends art and science. With the Leap Motion Controller, you will have an unprecedented sense of immersion in this simulation, and you will see new and exciting forms and movement every time you play with it.

Features
  • Hold out two hands above the Leap Motion Controller, with your fingers spread out and your palms down, to warp spacetime and influence the beautiful chaos.
  • Hold out one hand, with fingers spread out and your palm down, to rotate the view.
  • Hold out one hand, with one finger pointed towards the screen, to activate the Leap based menu and change the colors and look of the chaos.
  • Save beautiful, high resolution screen shots of your creations.
  • Use the multi-window / multi-monitor support if you’re a VJ, performer, or other user who wants the full user interface available on one window or display and just the animated image on the other window, display, or projector.
  • Streaming video output via Syphon (OS X) and Spout (Windows)
  • Full documentation of all features is available at BeautifulChaosApp.com.

    IT IS A TRUE ORIGINAL,IT COULD BE MORE INTUITIVE. I COULD SEE MYSELF USING THIS ONE WITH OTHER PROGRAMS TO CREATE ALL SORTS OF BEAUTIFUL DESIGNS.

    Thank you! I'm prototyping some new features to make it more intuitive, and will eventually add features for video capture and streaming to integrate with other programs.

  • 控制时常?Out of control?

    似乎一点反应都没有,内容也令人失望,不过是一堆连线做漫无目的的转圈,简直要把我晃晕。而且不像宣传视频里那样的,一点反应也没有。_(@_@ゝ∠)_ 如果商店可以“游戏时间不满两小时可退货”就好了_(:зゝ∠)_(好想退货) It seems like a creative game, but it actually lets me down.(I CAN'T CONTROL IT! THE ONLY THING I CAN SEE IS THE STATIC LINE&CIRCLE!WHAT'S MORE,IT CAN'T MAKE A SOUND)*col(cry out loudly)*

     


  • Awesome particle simulator/mathematical chaos app

    This is a really cool application. Your hand movements create randomness in the system of "particles" . The closer you move your palm together the more randomness introduced. You can also stop the image by lifting up your hands. Mathematics can be quite beautiful. Also, the leap motion controls are fairly spot on and accurate. Haven't had any trouble thus far.

    Very impressive and creative art oriented; three add on would be gorgeous: 1. Music 2. Video recording 3. Different Colors Thanks and good work

    Thanks! Glad you enjoy it. Video recording is definitely on the horizon; music and different colors are also possibilities.

  • Strange... yet attractive! Seriously amazing.

    I've tried a number of leap apps so far, and this one beats them all. It's a perfect use of the leap's capabilities; it's high refresh rate, and high precision. The mathematical structures in the app seem to come alive, and respond to my slightest movement. I long to hear what the patterns on the screen would sound like if the app had audio output! Perhaps it's for the best, though... I'm afraid my brain would literally explode from awesomeness overload.

    So glad you enjoy it! Having an audio sonification of the math might be interesting, I'll definitely consider it. Thanks!
