Magma – relaxing lava lamp effects

About Magma

Magma is a simple calming and relaxing visual app for people of ALL ages. Magma generates lava style slow moving effects, which when combined with music from the phone or music player can be relaxing and also stimulating. Beaming Magma to a TV or projector fills the sensory space with the slow, lava effect. Magma for iOS is slightly different to Magma for Windows and Web app, as they were created at different points in time.

Keyboard 5 removes the silver buttons on the Magma Windows, Android and Web app versions. Magma (all versions including iOS) can also be controlled by using an XBox controller or the Microsoft Adaptive Controller with any suitable switch inputs. A,B,X and Y control the effects.
