Modern Carpenty and Third Ave Design are proud to announce the release of Kinetic Sketch. Kinetic Sketch is a physics based drawing tool which both entertaining to play with, and also a powerful tool for image creation and sharing.
In a kinetic sketch drawing session, a user can add shapes ( rectangles, circles, and triangles ) into a two dimensional physical simulation. The shapes can be filled with a solid color, an image, or even your webcam video (provided that you have one-). The color and image fills are determined by the palette that is selected. A user can choose one of 15 pre-selected palettes, or search flickr ( http://flickr.com ) for a new palette image to use.
As the simulation proceeds, the shapes draw themselves to the canvas in the background. The shapes are drawn to the canvas depending on the draw mode - normal, speed, or collision. Normal draw mode draws each shape the same. Speed draw mode draws the shape according to its speed, and collision draw mode only draws shapes which are colliding.
In addition to the ability to change the draw mode, a user can change the blend mode of how the shapes are drawn to the canvas, and also control gravity (up/down, left/right) by using the arrow keys.
After a sketch is complete, a user can upload their sketch to Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, or Kinetic Sketch’s own gallery, located at http://kineticsketch.com/gallery.
For any questions regarding privacy, licensing, and terms, there is more information here: http://kineticsketch.com/privacy.
Future releases of Kinetic Sketch hope to include:
- music draw mode which would draw the shapes according to the sound spectrum of a song
- allow users to upload their own palette image
- allow voting in the gallery
- integrate membership into the site
- user stats
Third Ave Design welcomes any feedback in regards to feature requests, questions as to how to use the tool, and bug reports. You may send any comments, questions, or wishings of well being to
