Simulated LCD

These are not photos of an LCD monitor. It’s an AS3 application. A picture is loaded in. Every nth pixel is sampled and a pseudo-pixel is drawn, each with a red, green, and blue bar. The whole thing can be rotated and positioned in 3D. Best seen full size, of course.

    It’s nowhere as good as yours though.

    These look great! cool idea. Are you using FP10 to rotate the plane in 3d? Can they spin in realtime?

    yeah, fp10. Didn’t actually try it in real time believe it or not. I’m sure it wouldn’t be great, but might be passable. Could always draw it to a bitmap and rotate that.
