Bug, An App That Turns Color Into Music With a Touch

Bug app

Bug is an app by graphic design studio Linked by Air that turns color into music with a touch. Users need only hold their smartphone up to an object, then Bug will display a color for the object, and then the touch of a finger makes music. The app matches colors to a specific tone in order to function.

How does it work?

Bug makes each color of the spectrum correspond to a musical tone. Red is the lowest note because it is the lowest frequency color. Violet is the highest note because it’s the highest frequency color that we can see. Yellow and green are in the middle.

Bug is currently available on iOS. We previously wrote about Shrub, an app by the same folks for creating bizarre collages.
