Eadweard Muybridge

“The Muybridgizer” for Your iPhone.

The Tate Museum in London is showing a new exhibit on Eadweard Muybridge from September 8th through January 16th 2011. In honor of the photographer that basically launched the film industry, The Tate Museum has launched a pretty cool iPhone app appropriately called the “The Muybridgizer“. The app is free on the iTunes store and is very easy to use. The photo sequences you shoot can be shared to Flickr, or emailed. The Muybridgizer allows you to record an image sequence with your iPhone camera in the style of Eadweard Muybridge’s motion capture experiments. After you have shot your sequence you can browse both as a static grid and also as frame by frame animation; speeding up, slowing down and reversing the direction of motion with swipes of your finger across the screen. It’s pretty cool, and it’s free.
