Trippy, dude

If you're like me, you find the visualizer feature in iTunes pretty useless. You might have turned it on twice. Once when you first found it and once when you had a house party. But that second time, you wanted to change a song so you turned the visualizer off after a few songs.

Well, it's time to turn that visualizer on (at least) one more time. Magnetosphere visualizer creates a very cool sci-fi scape that you can customize by adding and subtracting particles.

Magnetoshpere is the first project from Barbarian Software, a part of The Barbarian Group, a Boston-based interactive marketing firm. They have done work for Nike, VW, Miller Beer and many others. Their most famous work was on a little project called Subservient Chicken for Burger King's agency Crispin Porter & Bogusky.

cool for sure, but where do they go from here. Is this a way for Barbarian to get there name out there so eventually people will pay them for this kind of thing? just must have pretty deep pockets for this to be just a fun side project

Thank God. The Apple visualizer made me want to puke. Literally. And then after I puked, I would stir around the little chunks of pasta to the beat of the music and it still looked better.
