4882 readersThe Belousov-Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction is a class of chemical reaction that exhibits morphogenesis or spontaneous pattern creation. The mechanism by which it generates patterns is known as reaction-diffusion and was actually separately proposed by Alan Turing in his famous paper, "The Chemical Basis of Morphogenesis".I stumbled across this paper written by Alasdair Turner. He wrote

So after giving the Processing IDE a great deal of respect I decided that for building apps I would have to use an IDE which suits my needs. Moving to Eclipse might be tricky for new comers but there
4460 readersProcessing is written in Java, and it plays very well with the Android platform. Every serious programmer knows that the Processing IDE is far from being a proper IDE, and the official Android IDE is Eclipse, so we better stick to Eclipse. To setup a Processing Android project in Eclipse, follow these steps: Setup a normal Eclipse

1459 readersThe subject of using Pixel Bender for audio processing on the Flash platform comes up a lot. Audio processing is very processor-intensive and math-heavy, so it would seem natural to leverage Pixel Bender to improve performance of audio within a SWF. At some point, last year, I was talking to Justin Everett-Church about doing a
