Apologies to anyone who’s on Processing overload, but we keep finding fantastic work. Quasimondo’s Rubber Screen maps an image to a 3d mesh and then lets it jiggle like hyperactive Jell-o. The still image doesn’t do it justice; you have to try it out. Like the 90s app Goo, you can warp images in comical ways. Unlike Goo, though, everything happens in real-time, with physically-realistic animations and various cool tools. This also gives me hope for the possibilities of coding physical dynamics and fluid models in Processing and Java. (Sadly, no source code, but just playing around with it should spark some ideas.)
I know there are other projects similar to this. Got a favorite? Let us know.
