A wave-like effect applied to RGB video based on an implementation of the “Optical Flow” technique. Optical Flow can be used for detecting objects in motion and their direction of travel. It’s being used in this demo to apply “waves” to motion as well as color to indicate direction and velocity.

Launch the experiment and allow your webcam to experience the flow.
