Description

*for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch with camera only*

Leonardo Da Vinci made the Roman architect Vitruvius famous by his now well-known drawing of a man inside a circle and square. They both understood the fact that hidden deep within the human form there is symmetry, and geometry.

With this application, you can explore these hidden relationships. Using any image from your photo album, or one you take on the spot with the camera, you can overlay the geometric template, which contains this "sacred" geometry (the golden ratio - phi - in the pentagon star). You can then scale the overlay as you see fit, and scroll it into position, to test and reveal these proportions, and judge for yourself. Try as many people (or animals) as you like.

The face is the quickest way to reveal this, and the human body itself also contains these proportions. For best results, use photographs that are horizontally aligned, and not rotated at angles. You will be amazed at how mathematics, geometry, and nature, all interact, and correspond!
