OpenProcessing. OpenProcessing is a community-driven site where people can share their portfolios. You'll find a vast array of creative sketches that range from art to science. For example, GUIGUITROCHOID by Guigui simulates the gears in a Spirograph. In addition to enjoying the visual beauty, you can also view the source code from any sketch to see how it works.
The Nature of Code. Another great site from Daniel Shiffman, this site covers "topics ranging from basic mathematics and physics concepts to more advanced simulations of complex systems. Subjects covered will include forces, trigonometry, fractals, cellular automata, self-organization, and genetic algorithms." In addition to all the great Processing code, you'll also learn the physics behind the code. For example, the material on vectors and path following will be helpful to anyone doing robotics.
Ben Fry's Project Page. This site has a number of projects by Ben Fry, Processing's co-creator. Although light on code, the examples show the full range of amazing data visualization possible with the Processing language. (Most of the code for the projects are in his Visualizing Data book). The site also has several interesting examples of visualizing genetic data, but my favorite are the ones of source code from Atari 2600 games.
processing.android. This site compiles videos from a number of workshops on running Processing on Android, the popular mobile phone operating system. In addition to the basic graphics, the site has videos on how to use libraries to read data from a phone's sensors.
a single brain contains more switches than all of the electronic switches on Earth. The cerebral cortex alone contains more synapses than the stars in 1,500 Milky Way galaxies. Researchers are also learning that each synapse is not merely a binary switch, but a complex cell capable of computation and data storage.
We’re delighted to have some exclusive images from Jason Snyder’s microscope. He has a sharp eye for the compelling, unusual forms of brain tissue and uses a beautiful array of staining techniques to highlight young neurons and answer questions relating to neurophysiological results of neurogenesis.
