I literally have no clue what spherical harmonics are. Oh hang on there’s an explanation here on Paul Bourke’s site.
The following closed objects are commonly called spherical harmonics although they are only remotely related to the mathematical definition found in the solution to certain wave functions, most notable the eigenfunctions of angular momentum operators.
Um yeah. That didn’t really help.
I’m sure we’ll be featuring many many more posts about Toxilibs.js, three.js and Processing.js. But if you can’t wait I’d definitely spend some time reading up on these incredibly useful creative coding tools.
