Dynamic non-looping plasma

Processing implementation of a plasma field that does not use a look-up table for sin values.

Plasma is a computer graphics trick. It is made by cycling through per-calculated sums of sin values. It was popular in hacker demoz and cracktroz. The effect appears psychedelic, which is reminiscent of the relationship between computers and altered states of mind.

This video is a render of 900 frames (5 min) of a plasma program.

This is based code by Lode Vandevenne, which can be found at http://student.kuleuven.be/~m0216922/CG/plasma.html
