The first example shows a “””simple””” web-based Darkroom that allows you to perform color correction on an image :

Fast JavaScript is a cornerstone of the modern web. In the past, application authors had to wait for browser developers to implement any complex functionality in the browser itself, so that they could access it from script code. Today, many of those functions can move straight into JavaScript itself. […]

I want to show tags connexions between some random articles, here the code !

The PHP WordPress code is added in a declared new page,
named ./wp-content/themes/mytheme/graphs.php :

Template Name: Graphs
$articles = array();
$max = 15;
$count = 1;
if (have_posts()) :
	while (have_posts()) : the_post();
		$posttags = get_the_tags();
		$taggs = array();
		foreach((array)$posttags as $tag) {
			$taggs[] = addslashes($tag->name);
		if (count($taggs) > 2) {
			$title = the_title('', '', false);
			if (strpos($title, '&#') === FALSE) { // for the moment, i cannot un_html_entities() that, some titles in the blog came from strange rss feed...
				$title = str_replace('’', '\'', $title);
				$title = stripTags(un_html_entities(utf8_decode($title)));
				if (strlen($title) > 40) $title = substr($title, 0, 40).' (...)';
				$articles[] = "{href:'".get_permalink()."', title:'".utf8_encode(addslashes($title))."', tags:'".implode(',', $taggs)."'}";
				if ($count >= $max) break;
				else $count++;
	$articles = implode(',', $articles);

The JavaScript in ./wp-content/themes/mytheme/graphs.php :

We’ve seen several implementations of Conway’s Game of Life that run in the browser — probably because Dr. Conway’s exercise in generative, automated systems is both simple enough for programmers to reproduce easily and pretty enough to watch that it quickly captures one’s imagination.

Here’s the latest: an HTML5 version of Life, as built by British programmer Joseph Mansfield. He says he tackled the “mini-project” to have fun with the HTML5 canvas element.

Here’s a primer on Life from Visit Mansfield’s site and try out some different patterns and see […]

Relighting Sylvia

Inspired by the research of Paul Debevec on photographic relighting, I’ve created this Flash experiment showing a real-time relighted scene of my girlfriend with her netbook. Watch it here. Please note it requires a fast computer to run at full framerate.

The scene has been captured without any special hardware, just a common reflex camera (Nikon D70) with its remote, a tripod and the netbook as the only light source. The time for shooting all the photos required for the relighting process was about 3-4 minutes, where Silvia — the Spanish for Sylvia — stayed amazingly […]

Dancing Typography screenshots

In this experiment/new visual effect, the letters from a lyric of a popular song – Never Gonna Give You Up — are repositioned to compose the images of its singer — Rick Astley — dancing in fluid motion. Take a look of it here.

It is an evolution of an experiment I did a month ago where text compose a static image. In this case, I modified the algorithm to achieve the smooth motion by making the  letters move the less as possible to be adapted to the next frame in the video.

As the previous experiment, this was thought to be done with Javascript/CSS, but I’ve finally had […]

L’expérience Panopticlick de l’EFF démontre clairement que l’ouverture actuelle des navigateurs Internet quand à leur configuration technique représente un moyen de traçabilité très puissant des internautes. Ce moyen est indépendant de leur volonté d’être suivi ou non….

Sebastian Deutsch has a nice new experiment that uses HTML5 audio + Processing (which uses Canvas) to visualize Twitter streams sync’d to music.

In their words:

We’ve created a litttle experiment which loads 100 tweets related to HTML5 and displays them using a javascript-based particle engine. Each particle represents a tweet – click on one of them and it’ll appear on the screen.

The original particle engine was ported from a Flex/AS3 project to javascript. We’re using processing.js for particle rendering on canvas which is a very useful graphics library created by John […]
