Stephen Coy, the designer of the Windows Vista screensavers and Tim Cowley, a software engineer on the Office team have come together to release a visualizations pack for Windows Media Player called “Psychedelia” two years in the making.
As a requirement to run these visualizations, you will need a graphics card that supports at least shader model 2.0 (most DirectX 9 graphics cards will).
Included in the single package are 7 visualizations with over 40 variations in total, including
Album Art 3D - 3D cubes with the album art of the song you’re currently playing
Bubbles - inspired by the Bubbles Vista screensavers also featuring the album art
Distortion - distorts the album art in a 3D waveform
Hypnobloom - hypnotic checkered purple rings
Ribbons - inspired by the Mystify and Ribbons Vista screensavers
Gigertron 3D - 3D layered visualizer bars
up cuber - a pigment arrangement of 3D hexagon cubes
Other: 3D video graphics card with hardware support for shader model 2.0 or better.
Other OS versions *: Vista
* Note: Functionality may be limited on OSes other than Windows XP.
