iHeart Poetics – Bringing Poetry to Life on iDevices

image


While the App Store has a number of iOS applications for writing scripts, I haven't found much for the poetically inclined. I've been left to use the Notes app to jot down haikus on the go.

But a Kickstarter project by visual artist Seth Indigo Carnes aims to change that with his soon-to-be-released iOS app, iheart poetics. This application is designed to create and share interactive visual poems, which combine compelling text and vivid imagery. You have the option to begin with text, ranging from one word to a full poem you've composed. Once written, you can superimpose an image. Once complete, you can share it via email, MMS, Facebook, and Twitter.

These covers feature interiors made of reclaimed fleece from recycled Patagonia jackets and sweaters. The rugged, water-resistant exterior is made of recycled PET plastic.

The Hong Kong based company has developed and produced the FLAXUS, touted as the world’s first wearable mobile stylus.

FLAXUS is unique for a couple of reasons. For starters, its design is a result of the need to combine functionality with style.
