Pärlplatta aka Plastic Beads
A “Pärlplatta” is plastic beads melted together by ironing. I made this really simple, yet fun Flash app which makes “pärlplattor” out of ordinary images.</p>
<p><a href="http://hunch.se/stuff/beads.swf"><img src="/resources/old/beads.jpg" alt="" /></a></p> <p>I used the bitmap class, available in Flash 8 and later, to “pixelate” the original, then draw vector “beads” on top of every pixel.</p> <p><a href="http://bighugelabs.com/flickr/">Flickr Toys</a> implemented this after I gave them the source. Neat!
