OVERVIEW

pixelToy takes an experimental approach to controlling pixel mapped lights in a creative new way.  The concept, born during ETC's Innovation Quest contest, was to develop a fun tool for creating dynamic content effects in a way that is both innovative and familiar.  The user interface was designed from the ground up to be operated entirely via touch and multi-touch input devices.  In an effort to keep the interface as simple and intuitive as possible, we set a goal to keep the entire application free of text.  pixelToy can be used as a lighting instrument for live effects and can also playback pre-recorded sequences of effects.  All effects are dynamically loaded as plug-ins when the application starts.  Software developers are encouraged to write their own effects and share them with the community.
