"Apps like Gravilux awaken an 'Avatar'-like sensitivity to electricity in the body, power in the palms and general connectedness." - NY Times
"Every once in a while, an app will come along that has no practical application whatsoever but is just SO COOL that you have to have it! Gravilux is that sort of app."
"Of the millions of apps out there, none quite capitalize on the sheer fun and beauty of interactivity the way that Scott Snibbe's do." --CoolHunting

#1 Entertainment App in Mac App Store worldwide Top Ten Overall Worldwide iTunes Top 10 App of the year for Art and Music on iOS

Gravilux lets you draw with stars: it's a combination of painting, animation, art, science, and gaming. As you touch the screen, gravity draws simulated stars to your fingertips. You can tease and twist the particles into galaxies, explode them like a supernova, or color the stars by their speed. Move the mouse to the bottom of the screen to change parameters including gravity, antigravity, number of stars, star size, and color. Gravilux was first released as a work of interactive art by Scott Sona Snibbe that was only available in galleries and museums. The award winning app for iOS is now available for Mac based on the same code.
