tracks left by movement through a space

This was written to test a method for dynamically displaying individuals moving within a space, each with a colour. The movement tracks fade over time.

For quick movements the tracks are less dense, if standing still—perhaps in conversation (simulated with mouse held down)—the density increases.

This follows a theme on tracking human motion and interaction, initially developed in the Sensor Grid.

Java no longer works in browsers so there’s no interaction, but you can run the .pde code in Processing.
