Inspired by the timeless neon lights of the past, and the utopian dreams of tomorrow. Each shape is programmatically generated, with a few special properties sprinkled throughout.
"There's a neon light at the end of the tunnel" - Blake Shelton
Neon lights evoke a sense of wonder and amazement. They’re memories of playing arcade games under its warm glow, and fantasies of adventures through the alleyways of Tokyo. The lights, speak to our past. But they also speak to the future. One built on-chain, where they live on eternally—as Neon Moodz.
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”- Leonardo Da Vinci
It started with an algorithm to generate complex shapes and patterns. But drawing inspiration from Da Vinci it evolved to something different. Instead we found beauty in simplicity. Starting from one point that leads to an unknown endpoint. Shapes that start as a circle broken into multiple edges and vertices. We’re not looking to create perfection. We’re looking to create infinite possibilities.
“I want to know one thing. What is color?” - Pablo Picasso.
It’s the flow of neon gas snaking through a glass tube that brings color and life. So it was critical we approached colors and glow correctly. A custom fresnel shader brings light and volume to the shape instead of internal lighting. Look closely and you can see the gas moving inside Neon Moodz. An attention to detail worthy of this noble gas.
