Designed by Japanese interactive media artist Toshio Iwai (Otocky, SimTunes), Electroplankton turns the Nintendo DS into a highly interactive audio-visual toy. Something of a cross between a life simulation and DJ software, the program allows players to create their own music, complete with dynamic visual-effect accompaniment, by using the touch screen to manipulate cute little "plankton" characters and their various environments. Each of the ten electroplankton modes allows for distinct aural patterns, including one that can be used as a sampler, repeating whatever noise it captures through the DS microphone.
