First attemp to Processing.

I'm working on Processing in my free time, and I think it's a very powerful software. I heard about this software in the winter of 2006 when I visited the Interaction Design Institute of Ivrea (which now has closed, Italy, poor country). Stefano Mirti, who taught Processing in that school, showed and told us that soon it would become a famous software. Everyone know that Processing is an open source software created by Ben Fry and Casey Reas, but not everyone knows how fun and easy is to write code with it.

The potential of processing is handling a huge amount of geometry on the screen and interfacing with most of the computational software. This is a simple bouncing ball in the space limit of the screen, creating a ghost effect of itself, creating a very strong pattern. The circle while bounces changes its size according to a sinusoidal law, as if a button was pressed, like on-off, 0 and 1 values.
More to come in next future.
