Geometrize Web Demo - geometrizing images into geometric primitives This webpage uses the Geometrize Haxe library to transform images into shapes. It's a demo for Geometrize, my open source desktop app designed for recreating images as geometric primitives. Given an image to recreate, Geometrize generates hundreds of random shapes, and repeatedly mutates these as part of a hillclimbing optimization approach. Internally, this demo uses a web worker so the webpage remains responsive while the geometrization algorithm ranks thousands of these shapes behind the scenes, only picking the best-fitting shapes for use in the final image. The "Run/Pause" button starts or stops the geometrization process, the "Step" button adds one primitive to the image when pressed, the "Open Image" button lets you select your own images, the "Random Image" button picks a random preset image, and the "Reset" button clears all of the current shapes, restarting the geometrization from scratch. Additional controls are accessed by clicking on the "Settings" section.

a Draw Anywhere - easy online diagramming, flow chart Leader Following steering behavior - Aurora In this demonstration a group of ten vehicles exhibit leader following behavior. Click with your mouse anywhere in the yellow window to toggle between two modes. In one case, they are colored green and all follow the single gray leader. In the other case they are colored cyan and follow one another, forming a "single file" procession, much like a family of ducklings following their mother. A single gray leader vehicle employs an unrelated ad hoc behavior combining seeking randomly selected locations, wandering, and selecting between fast and slow movement. It is oblivious to the other vehicles. The leader following behavior combines separation (a desire to avoid crowding) and arrival (a desire to move towards a point, slowing as it draws near). In this diagram, a vehicle's velocity vector is shown in magenta, and its steering force vector in blue. FromSteering Behaviors for Autonomous Characters

Mind Mapping Software - Create Mind Maps online Visual Thinking Evolution A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea. Especially in British English, the terms spidergram and spidergraph are more common,[1] but they can cause confusion with the term spider diagram used in mathematics and logic. Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid to studying and organizing information, solving problems, making decisions, and writing. The elements of a given mind map are arranged intuitively according to the importance of the concepts, and are classified into groupings, branches, or areas, with the goal of representing semantic or other connections between portions of information. By presenting ideas in a radial, graphical, non-linear manner, mind maps encourage a brainstorming approach to planning and organizational tasks. The mind map can be contrasted with the similar idea of concept mapping. Reference: wikipedia

Check this out on our Partner Network Painting Intoxicated at 100 MPH It's almost as if Alexandra Pacula paints what she sees while driving drunk at 100 mph. "My work investigates a world of visual intoxication; it captures moments of enchantment, which are associated with urban nightlife," says the New York-based artist born in Poland. "I am fascinated by the ambiance of the city at night and its seductive qualities. The breathtaking turbulence of speeding vehicles and hasty pedestrians evoke feelings of wonder and disorientation. The vibrant lights become a magical landscape with enticing opportunities and promises of fulfillment." Pacula paints with oil to recreate the feeling of dizziness and confusion. "I suggest motion in order to slow down the scene and capture the fleeting moments, which tend to be forgotten," she says.

Steve Smith I don’t know what’s the deal with these hyperrealist artists, once again, great work, but absolutely no information…so I’ll just tell you to look at Steve Smith’s pretty paintings, who apparently dreams of sunny days, holidays and sunglasses. Can’t say I blame him!
