Beautiful Chaos is an experimental art app designed for the Leap Motion Controller, a 3D motion control device that enables gestural interaction with a computer.
The user interacts with the software and the underlying mathematical formulas to produce an infinite variety of futuristic, abstract shapes. As the user’s hands move, the coefficients of a math equation change, and the chaotic cloud of particles ripples and shifts in unpredictable, beautiful and mysterious ways.
