Water Picture - ashimo - 07-01-2011

The digital water simulation applet applies procedural graphics to enliven existing images in 2D graphics.

One of our favorite demonstrations.
  • procedural graphics, image processing functionality
  • high level constructs - displacement mesh example
  • efficient specialized iterations
  • exploits processing capacity on the client machine

Make existing static images come to life using Curl.
  • Move the pointer across the picture. It changes, just as if you'd dragged your finger through the water.
  • Try rain mode, too, and adjust the scales for changing effects.
  • You can use Curl to develop imaginative ways to make the user experience more interactive.
  • The power of client-side computing lets you simulate the properties of water (or anything else procedurally feasible) in real time and present eye-catching animation with both quality and speed.
