Design your own digital flower


If you can’t afford to buy real flowers, hate the hassle of finding the right vases for them or simply don’t think there’s a flower beautiful enough out there, there’s now an app for you!

Real-time 3D designer Carlos Ulloa demoed one of his company’s creative iPhone and iPad apps, ‘helloflower’, at the Thinking Digital Conference.

“Out of all of the projects I’ve worked with, this one is the most creative”, he said.

Designed for the niche market, helloflower is not trying to become the new killer app. It’s simply there to make our lives a bit more creative and colourful.

Using a simple tool and some imagination, anyone can design and create the flower of their dreams in 3D.

You can then save your creation to a gallery or share it on Facebook.

Printing the flowers might be an option in the future but at the moment Carlos said the infinite creative room given to users makes it impossible.

“We’ve given people too much freedom!”, he laughed.

According to Carlos, kids especially have taken to the app.

“They love it! Especially girls. They could spend hours creating flowers”, he said.

Plugging the app at one the most important tech events of the year didn’t do any harm. According to a TDC tweeter, helloflower jumped 194 places in the iPad UK Entertainment category after Carlos’ talk.
