This could be a good basis for ideas for my interactive design, and then I could build the idea

The most important part of camera interaction is the code above – this loads the camera for the information to be captured from. The possibilities with camera interaction for almost endless, see my Interactive Design Ideas post for my ideas of what I have come up with for camera interaction.

For example, this is what the Mirror 2 example looks like when run,

but it can be altered so easily, such as in the image below I changed the colour by changing the number of the background colour, and I also changed the ‘rect’ to an ‘ellipse’, making the pixels circles instead of squares.

From this, I am going to go through the examples already given and try and edit to try and create a really interesting and different example. One of my ideas is to capture a face and link it to my bouncing ball example, so it is essentially a bouncing face, this will be my next Processing task.
