Like most of us, in 2007 I was intrigued by the speed of Processing and decided to put it to the test in relation to my Color Analytic and Visualization algorithms. The objective of this experiment was to see if Processing code analyze and visualize a real-time video feed from my WebCam.

For the color lovers out there, what's unique about this approach vs. traditional color theory algorithms, e.g., complimentary color algorithms, is the fact that I'm taking the entire color population (all of the pixels in the image) and saving them into a multi-dimensional array, sorting them, counting the number of occurrences (Frequency), getting the Relative Frequency and then visualizing them in a 2d color space where the X-Position = Hue (ROYGBIV) and the Y-Position is based on the Saturation and Brightness.
