PixiVisor Lets You Treat Video As Sound

There are plenty of apps out there you can easily waste your money on if you feel like it.  Of course this doesn’t mean that there aren’t powerful apps that are well worth the huge chunk of money that they cost, but that is all of that without a few experimental ones to play around with?  One theme that I’ve noticed with app developers is their uncanny ability to blend themes and find a relationship between two events that normally would be unrelated.  One of the better examples is finding ways to blend sound and audio together.  With a plug in like Video SL, one can blend video at the same time they mix their music – but what about actually taking images and synthesizing them into audible notes?  How would one even go about implementing this idea?

It starts with finding an algorithm that takes images and turns it into sound.  There are already a few apps that can do something to this effect; one of them being the milkdrop plug in for Winamp users.  However, PixiVisor expands upon this idea in a revolutionary way.  It actually takes a palette of images and allow you to transmit the sounds to another device while you create them on the fly.
