This morning I began working out the issues with the processing code. Much to my surprise we were able to work out this problem relatively quickly. As of today we successfully reproduced the Matlab processing code in C++, plus (heh) ours is much prettier. Our code also presents a performance increase from 3-4 frames per second to 16 with no optimizations.
The rush received as a result of this accomplishment is rivaled only by that known to those who witnessed Ronald Reagan's single handed destruction of the Berlin wall. The freedom in the air was palpable in both situations. On a more serious note, today was excellent, much candy was eaten.
Looking forward to finalizing and practicing our presentation tomorrow.
