Now, with interactivity! 🙂
Click on the image to start the applet, and then move the mouse around to interact with the circles. You might have to click and drag around to get it working the first time. I switched from sphere to ellipse solely so I could add many more connections and still smooth the lines without taking a hit in framerate. So much fun! Lemme know what you think!

Also (somewhat ridiculously) simple source can be found here!
Two posts in a week(ish)? ASTONISHING.
Last night I had some free time to see what all the fuss my coworkers were making about Processing and I’m glad I did. Essentially, processing makes programmatic ‘sketching’ a rather simple task. The reference guides and tutorials are great, and the code is super easy to follow. And ever since I saw Jared Tarbell speak at Geeky By Nature, I’ve been dying to play around. So obviously, this was inspired by browsing his site whenever I got a chance for the last couple weeks. Eventually I promise I’ll make something cool to call my own. I want to turn this into something fun and interactive for my company’s new office.
Click on the image to start the applet, and then click again to reset the spheres. Lemme know what you think! Hit me up – @trippedout.
