Distorted Android

Thursday, May 26th, 2016

I have just launched a new project – ‘Distorted’ graphics library for the Android system. It is a fully Open Source library for graphics effects – various distortions were the first effects implemented, thus the name.

A suite of example applications, each one showing one particular aspect of the library, is also available.

Source code:

git clone
git clone

Tutorials, JavaDoc, Wikis and more will soon appear in

Bon apetit!
