Started dabbling with Processing again today to do some kaleidoscope-/symmetry-tests. Found out how to do "classic" kaleidoscopic reflections - simple effect, but nevertheless sort of fascinating to look at in motion. Added a few more snaps to our flickr-pool. The next step is to look at interactivity and try to do a more 2007-looking take on this effect. Ideas, anyone?
Found some interesting Wikipedia entries on Symmetry, Kaleidoscopes and the Kaleidoplex (almost what we are making).
Did some more tweaks to the processing sketch, download it here to test it and help me with the programming! Keys 'q' and 'w' make things move.
This sketch uses a preset photo, but in the latest version there's a "snapshot mode" for taking new pictures, and "video mode" to texture the triangles with live video.
