Poly is a new geometric drawing app for the iPad by Seoul-based interaction designer Jean-Christophe Naour. The program lets you import imagery and trace it geometrically while it averages color based on data within each triangular field. As you draw with points, your pictures turn into a geometric array of colors.
The project is inspired by the triangulation invented by the mathematician Boris Delaunay in 1934. While the process behind is complicated, the results reduce an image to its essentials, creating the illusions of triangles, prisms and pyramids.
Some of the features include:
· Taking and loading pictures.
· Draw, Erase, Undo.
· Different rendering styles : flat, wire frame, point, color blending.
· Saving to your Photo Library.
· Portrait and Landscape mode.
