What is it?

Liquid mac requires a macintosh laptop computer with a sudden motion enabled sensor. This includes MacBook family, MacBook Pro family, and some of the latest PowerBooks. It mimics the behavior of liquid by creating a particle system that reacts to the computer's orientation.

You can now get LiquidMac on your iPhone; say hi to LiquidPhone!
Get in the AppStore.

How to use it?

Launch it and tilt gently your computer. Play with the different parameters to get the desired effect. It can also go to full screen.

Is it free?

Yes! If you really want to, you can always contribute to my Pay-Pal account. If you want to include it into any CD-ROM or other media to mass-distribute it, please email-me!

Known Issues

Not tested on all machines. The liquid might move too slow/fast; or not react at all to tilting.


LiquidMac uses the UniMotion library to retrieve the current orientation of the computer.
