In Dimension of Mind I strive for the Vitruvian virtues of Utilitas, Firmitas, Venustas (utility, solidity, and beauty). "dimensionofmind.com" is a lot to type, so we are also at the 5dofm.co domain.
Our products are primarily iOS applications, but also includes associated artwork, and our general expertise includes a wide range of mobile, desktop and web technologies.
After years of concentration on Objective-C and iOS, I thought my web skills needed refreshing, and when the inspiration struck I began working on Pilktogram. Pilktogram runs on the Google App Engine and uses Twitter Bootstrap, html5boilerplate, jQuery, and Kineticjs libraries. Prototypes were done using php, and the first production version used Java servlets. Development tools include Aptana Studio 3, emacs, Eclipse Juno, and html5boilerplate build scripts.
I have a number of iOS applications available, including the latest: ArtShow, released in March 2013. See them all below.
I also have graphics and illustrations from and for other applications, which you can see in the Dimension of Mind gallery.
And I am a published Perl poet.
ArtShow is an iPad app for presenting interactive slideshows: zooming in on images, showing movies, browsing the web, and drawing over the slide being displayed; it also has a timed mode for visual quizzes.
In lectures where the images or movies being shown are the subject of the lecture, a standard slide presentation is not enough to allow the lecturer to fully explore the topic being covered. ArtShow allows you to create, share, and show, on an iPad or connected external screen, an ordered set of slides containing text, images, movies, and web pages. During presentation the lecturer can zoom in on image to focus on particular areas, show movies, or browse the web. Images may be presented full screen and images and slides may be interactively annotated using the ArtShow GlassBoard. ArtShow also has a timed presentation is designed to allow for slide-based timed quizzes, showing each slide for a set time, with an optional visual and audible warning before moving to the next slide.
Novel art clock: The SunDalí now available in a free version
...as well as the full ad-free SunDalí with more musical options.
My interests in timekeeping, art, and astronomy collided with an attack of metathesis to produce the SunDalí, an homage to Salvador Dalí.
There are three components:
From these elements, I offer:
TempusTuum™ Time Tools
The TempusTuum iOS app is the "multi-tool" of time. Included in the base version is a display of Astrological Planetary Hours, with the time in cuneiform, the phase of the moon, shadow lengths, and more. To this you can add the features you choose using in-app purchases. The tools include: Timer/Stopwatch/Metronome, Clock, Calendar, Work Cycles for personal productivity, and Prayer Times for reminders of daily events.
TempusTuum™ PictaChron clock of photos
The TTPictaChron iOS app is part photo slideshow, part image search utility, part clock. It displays photographs for the current time of day determined by the sun, so at sunset you'll see pictures taken near sunset. You can choose albums from your iPhone or iPad, or from photo sharing services. See photos of your favorite theme by specifying tags for Flickr, 500px, or Instagram.
