I didn’t know what to write about this week, so I figured that I would write about a cool hack i found this last week. So there was a contest recently to create a program that contains all RGB colors exactly once, which means that you could create pretty nifty pictures using a clever algorithm. In my opinion the author had quite an interesting strategy. He started with a pixel in the middle, then just let it “grow”. The result is a cool spiral-like pattern that is drawn pixel by pixel to create the entire image.
