The thoughts that were thunk and the goings on of my life.

Picture in a Picture

This is one of the coolest things that I've seen in quite some time! I could easily spend hours on it. I find life so interesting and some of these pictures represent some normal images just brilliantly captured.

For those of you confused as to how it works, each picture is composed of pixels and each pixel has some sort of RGB (Red, Green and Blue) value. In this compilation, each picture is assigned a particular RGB value based off of the average RGB value for the image. That way an algorithm can be made to create an image, but when zoomed in it loads the image of the assigned RGB. The algorithm could probably be made in a day or so, but the real coolness is in the size of the library of photos.

I love it when art and technology combine!

If you guys get on me enough I might be able to whip up a program that makes a collage out of your own photo library. I think I have the base now, just might need a few tweaks...and the LabVIEW Runtime Engine (only language I can code in).

HUH??...I thought RGB stood for Real Good Boy (or maybe, Recognize a Great Birthday!...-hint, hint, hint-)...Also, I thought sure that "algorithm" was the kind of liberal-sounding music at an Al Gore rally in 2000... Glad to hear that you're still alive & kickin'.
Hope Your day was a pleasurable one!!
