New additions to my collection of useless but fun toys for your webcam include the amazing Kaleido Cam, and the uncanny Alien Cam. These are in addition to my already popular Instant Ascii Cam (see previous post), which has received quite a few visitors since I rolled it out this past weekend.
The KaleidoCam is based on code I wrote quite some time ago, but never got around to posting on Krazydad. It turns your webcam into a virtual kaleidoscope (or perhaps more properly, a teleidoscope).
The Alien Cam is new, and does a color keying effect using randomly generated color gradients. Press the ‘zap!’ button to see random colors, until you see an alien you like!
