for this processing sketch I created a set of 5 nested cubes - each half the size of it's predecessor.
Each cube rotates around the x and y axis with different speeds and each cube rotates at a 10% slower rate than its predecessor.
To make the 3D effect a little bit more prominent I activated the "ENABLE_STROKE_PERSPECTIVE" hint, so the lines of the cubes wireframe get thinner the further they are away from the camera.
Initally i planned to render the cubes only as wireframes, but after experimenting with them for a while I decided to go for a transparent light blue shading.read more ...
I made a processing-sketch that shows the time using colors. i made 3 stripes of colors blending into each other, each of them cycling through the hue value of the color. then i blend between the colors.
the top color shows the hour, the middle color shows the minutes and the low color the seconds. the values start at red, blend to yellow and green, and get turcise at the half of the cycle. than they blend to blue and violet and finally back to red.
