New Visualization Project

I’ve started working on a new project to identify hotspots in some of data from one of the projects I’m working on. (Specific details to come later). In any case, I was inspired by the “Earth at Night” photos and some network traffic visualizations (I like the “hot spots” look) and whipped up a Java app this weekend to do something similar.

For part of the simulation I’m working on we need to display some random, abstract, screen screen saver to our participants within the simulation on a robot screen.  I decided to tinker with creating a variant of LIFE that uses a lot of color.  I’m pretty happy with it.  The colors are used to make it look nice + offspring take the average color of the parents (neighbors).
