This comprehensive 3D spiral vortex controller helps you discover a hidden world of geometry and explore the elegant design patterns of nature from atomic physics and astronomic fields to exotic black holes and theoretic wormholes.

Explore thousands of combinations of animation and curve settings for a pair of shimmering and exploding comets (or atomic scale particles) as they are guided to collisions along their individual space curves.

Control torus geometry, phase and pitch angles, trajectory speeds, spin directions, nodal interference patterns and more while you adjust the camera for the best viewing position and double tap the screen to enjoy the delicate animations at fullscreen.

Drop 'antimatter clusters' to help visualise the shape and movement of complex curved pathways or completely turned off the particle effects for a quiet meditative 'zen' design session.

The scale of these space curves can be imagined as spanning many orders of magnitude from tiny atomic and subatomic particle collisions and resonant electron shell formations to the immense electric fields, magnetic flux lines and astronomic gravitational forces which span the universe and influence the shape and movement of comets, solar systems, galaxies and the space-time distortions of blackholes and theoretical wormholes.

Importantly, to get the most enjoyment from Space Curves, make sure to explore the interactive help system from the main menu to learn how each action button works to change the active curve properties. Also remember to PRESS & HOLD the screen centre to go back to the main menu for help.
