When was the last time you played with your food?
JELL-O is making its first foray into the digital application world with Jiggle-It, a new free application available on iTunes, which invites users, young and old, into the JELL-O universe and encourages all to “play with their food.”
Jiggle-It features a customizable JELL-O cube that dances and jiggles to your favorite songs or music from your device’s microphone. The JELL-O cube detects the beats per minute of the music and automatically manipulates its dance moves accordingly.
Jiggle-It, which is available for the iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, is an application for the entire family to play solo, with the kids or with friends. A mother can hand the application to her two-year-old in the car or at the grocery store, or a twenty-something can explore every possible dance move with friends.
The JELL-O Jiggle-It app uses an original audio analyzer to detect a song’s BPM (beats per minute) along with its energy level throughout the track. The cube then pulls moves based strictly on those levels and the determined BPM—guaranteeing no dance is ever exactly alike. All the moves were designed in collaboration with a professional choreographer, and most can be triggered by a simple swipe gesture. The app also uses a cutting-edge, 3D engine to create the JELL-O cube’s authentic texture.
1. You can change your song or flavor at any point during a track. Just click on the options menu in the bottom-right corner.
2. The cube isn’t picky about music. So, try choosing a song that’s a little faster or even a little slower, and watch him break it down.
3. You can also try linking moves together to create new dance combinations. Just swipe your finger in different directions to activate different moves.
Choose any song in your iTunes and this JELL-O cube will jiggle right with the beat. Whether he’s stirring it up or serving it out, one thing’s for sure—this cube’s no square.
