iBonsai

iphone_landscapeBonsai is the Japanese art of miniaturizing trees by growing them in small pots. Now you can create your own miniature trees in 3D right on your iPhone or iPod!

With a tap of your finger, iBonsai’s sophisticated generative algorithm begins growing a unique digital tree. No two bonsai trees are the same! After about 30 seconds of growth, your mature bonsai becomes a beautifully rendered image in the sumi-e style of Japanese brush painting.

The iBonsai algorithm produces a wide variety of trees: you might get simple, elegant shapes or twisted, complex creations. The randomness is the source of its beauty.
