Developed by Arts University Bournemouth, this intriguing camera software lets you create spaced-out shots on your smartphone using its kaleidoscopic filters. Just point the camera – front or rear – at your surroundings and choose one of the five filters. Depending on which filter you use, and how you adjust its intensity with the slider, you can concoct everything from wallpaper-like patterns to distorted views of the subject.
You are then able to add them to one of kscope’s public galleries and share via Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Also intent on fostering their own community of users, you can also view a map of other kscope images from all the over the world. If you prefer privacy, there’s also an option hidden in the settings to save the ‘kscopes’ to your device.
You have to sign in to use the app, but it’s good fun to play around with to produce some arty effects. Recently updated, Kscope also now also allows you to record short video sequences, same as the iOS version.
